I live in the dessert so we never see a lot of it. But the timing is perfect. Being a dessert the plants that grow here are genetically prepared to take fast advantage of even small amounts of rain. It makes the entire dessert blossom over night. We have been getting what is for us a lot of rain all night and I can here it falling as I type. Rain for us is measured in hundredths of an inch. As far as My bees go they are very busy and this will cause there to be plenty of forage. They where able to make 90 lbs or more of honey in the driest hottest part of our year. no telling what this will allow them to do. I have a deep and a med super on the hive I was on the edge of my seat wondering if they could get them filled. This will give them a much better chance to find that nectar. The native plant life can do a whole lot with very little.
