But soon the sun will rise out of the Pacific to a mostly clear sky.

I've already irrigated my crops which is the time that I prefer to do it. Just before sunrise. The plants seem to like it better.

But if it is a breezy day, they'll get another but light irrigation in the late afternoon.

Yes. The quake woke me up out of a sound nap/sleep! It was moderately strong and lasted about 5 seconds. It occurred 26 miles due south of where I live. Of course, due to the continuing eruptive activity on the East Rift Zone of Kilauea, quakes occur most every day. Most are not feelable save for the seismographs that are placed all over this island by the USGS.

They do turn them off if we get several days of rain and things are in good shape. They were able to use them only twice a week during the worst of the drought. I think they're off now - I usually hear them come on if the windows are open, and I haven't heard them.

Did you feel the earthquake tonight?

If you are in a rainy period, do the automatic sprinklers still come on?

That's when our automatic irrigation system here at the apartment complex comes on in summer. 4 a.m. Time enough for the water to soak in and do some good before the sun starts baking it out.

We're hoping for a little natural irrigation in the middle of the week. We ought to get something in the Tues-Thurs time frame. The rain chances are going up, and everyone's smiling!
