You've Got Rain!
No, make that, "We've got rain!"
As you may already know from some of my previous posts, I've talked about how scary and brittle dry it's been here in NM. When I wrote about it in June, we had not seen rain since around September of 2012. And that rain wasn't much to write home about.
The image of the rain gauge here is from Thursday night's rain. Tonight (Friday night), while we were out enjoying live jazz music in the patio at a venue, a huge storm came in, causing us to pack it up and go home. I think we got about 1"-2" in about an hour or so. Needless to say, even though there is quite a lot of damage from trees falling and roads getting washed out, it is still wonderful to see all that moisture and humidity in the air. Not to mention the spectacular thunder and lighting that has come with it.
I know for those of you who live in soggy, er, wet climes, this is no big deal. But, here in New Mexico it is, with so many continuous years being so far below the rainfall that we need.
So, yeah, WE'VE GOT RAIN!
Come join us every week, as a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!
