Except for a brief shower two Fridays ago, south Tampa has been bone dry for over a month now even though WONDERFUL storms have been daily saturating portions of north Tampa plus east of Tampa out by Plant City lately. South Tampa is cursed with a "rain shadow" that deeply frustrates gardeners and homeowners year after freakin' year. But I made it rain today! A light rain grant you, barely enough to dampen the mulch. How did I do it?
I left a full load of dry laundry on my clothesline and my car window down! Try it! John
