Monsoon’s last gasp, maybe…

Boy, after an almost completely dry week it clouded up and rained like a sonuvagun briefly this afternoon. Started with hail. Filled the gullies real quick, so no surprise that the wash ran a little. About 20 minutes after it stopped I happened to be up at the wash before the bend and found out that it had rained a little over the plateau, too…


…because I happened to get there just as the run-off from the canyons reached that point.

It never amounted to a lot…


I think that was about the peak of the flow. And then a few hours later…


…it was down to a trickle.

This hasn’t been a particularly wet or difficult Monsoon, which I always appreciate in monsoons. Of course that means things get dry over the course of the year. But I notice we’re getting set for a pretty good autumn in terms of flowers blooming.
