Talk about being saved by a whisker. I came this close to being ambushed last weekend at Towsley Canyon. No, it wasn’t a mountain lion. It wasn’t even an irate hiker. It was....(cue dramatic music).... a SPIDER!
So just how much rain did we get on Sunday? Some reports say over seven inches? But my watering can is eight inches tall and on Monday morning it was full to the brim. Several of my potted plants were waterlogged - I had to bail them out. As I bailed, I started thinking - how much water can dirt hold, anyway?
