This has been an exceptionally hot and dry summer, one of the hottest on record with almost no rain. The remnants of a tropical storm last week pretty much dumped all the missing rain in a 24 hour period. The Perkiomen Creek was measured at almost 15 feet where it is normally a foot. The main pond in our pasture rose about 2 feet and the smaller pond behind it that was completely dry filled up and then some. Add to that another 2 days of rain and the water is definitely flowing again.
