If I was home, I'd happily take 2 mm.  It was dead dry when I left. Madrid was bloody hot and dry as well.  I was talking to a guy from near San Fran Cisco today who said they were in drought too.  Don't worry though - climate change is a myth.  Apparently.  Um.. unless you are the barrier reef... or one of us trying to grow food.

A whole 2mm. Can they spare it? ;-)

It was, got a mighty light show as it passed!

I grow most of my seedlings in pots in the elements as early as possible as I have terrible sense on hardening off, so I just moved them undercover with the storm coming over. Normally under rain I just leave them and the hardiest survive.

Was the video a brief look at some lightening?

Moving seedlings ... if possible leave them to grow under cover then they are always safe from rain and hail.
