For a couple of hours earlier in the evening, we could see strong, near constant flashes from a storm on the other side of the mountains, about 40 miles from here. It didn't look like we were going to get anything, but surprise, surprise! About 10:20pm, a fast-forming storm headed south from Bernalillo and lasted for several hours. Most of the time, it was just a big light show to the north of us.

Finally, about 1:45am, we got SOME rain pelting down, hard and fast, but it didn't last long.

The results at the house, .18". Up in the heights where the brunt of the storm was, nearly 3" of rain. Wow!

The streets are completely dry, though. Lots more 'tropical gulf moisture' floating over the state, so the next three days hold promise of more of these storms.

This storm eventually came south and hit us a glancing blow, but it was mostly east of us.

We've had a substantial amount of precipitation, but I always look forward to rain. Today it's not quite 70 and partly cloudy. I love it!!!
