Get a load of this…

The rain started slacking off a week ago. Sunday and Monday it only lightly rained. Tuesday through Friday were beautiful; hardly a cloud in the sky.

Yesterday that changed. It threatened all day and rained hard after dark. This morning…

It’s mid-October, he cried. Stop already with the rain.

    a) I’ll bet the air smells wonderful
    b) somebody’s going to have a job getting that tractor back out of there

    I’d say “count your blessings”, but you live in the desert, so it’s not a blessing in need of counting. I DON’T live in a desert, though you couldn’t tell by the local rainfall (insignificant) this year, and we could really use some of that unwelcome sky-water right about now:-(. Might get some tonight for a change, but the forecast is for more dry thereafter.

    We’ve had an inch of rain in less than 24 hours and I know that doesn’t sound like a lot. If it fell in an hour it actually wouldn’t be because most would run off into the wash. But these Michigan-style all-day soakers turn the clay and ash into quagmires. I just came from my shower at Ian’s, decked out like a North Sea merchant mariner, and damn near fell to my inevitable broken hip in my own side yard.

    You might ask BB how much rain he got from Ian.
