Last week 1.87 inches of rain fell on BP2 with a high of 68.8 and a low of 32.2.

>    Another interesting week is forecast for us.  Today, Sunday, will still continue with rain.  Tonight and into Monday, another round of rain and thunderstorms will move into Alabama.  There is a slight chance of severe weather.  Check your local weather source or the sites shown below.

As of this writing, 4:15 PM, almost 1.0″ has fallen on BP2 .

Keep an eye on Thursday morning for more thunderstorms with another slight chance of severe weather.

We will take a break from my usual Guest and Guess, and show some pretty Christmas Pictures.  Rocks of course.  See the attached pictures.

From the Rock Hound Crowd, a Merry Christmas!
