P.S. – Daily rain like we get in June is great for making things grow – sometimes a little too well. Many people do not realize how much precipitation this area receives. Some of the southern facing slopes in Haywood (our county) and Transylvania (our neighbor) Counties receive over 100 inches (254 cm) of rain a year. Daily rain this time of year is just a fact of life. The alternative – wildfires – is simply not what we want.
