The weatherman was right. Around 5 p.m. Wednesday the rain moved in and hung out for a couple of hours. At times it was heavy, very heavy, but the rain was definitely needed. By Friday morning most of that storm had made its way into Maine and in most of New Hampshire it was bright and sunny.

By comparison, on Thursday Mount Washington received 0.79 inches of rain. Here in the Valley our rainfall registered 1.12 inches.

For the period of Aug. 27-31 the Old Farmer's Almanac predicted thunderstorms, then sunny and cool. While we didn't have any thunder, we did get to enjoy a stormy and rainy period on Wednesday, Aug. 28.

Labor Day on Monday certainly wasn't a summer beach day. It was on the cool side with a batch of heavy rain greeting early risers. The rain hung around for most of the day.
