Good Gravy, this is the strangest monsoon season. Yesterday, it rained a bit here and was grey and overcast all day and night. I woke this morning at 4 AM to rain, steady earth soaking rain.
It is like living in Seattle, not the Mojave desert. Certainly we get rain, but not frequently do we get an inch of rain in 20 minutes like on Thursday.
I live next to a weather recording station. We have had .44 inches of rain since midnight and it is a lovely 68F.
I am not complaining oh no. I am expressing surprise.
