After months of zero precipitation, we got a little rain today. An afternoon thunderstorm pelted us with large drops of heavy rain and a little bit of hail for about 30 minutes around 2:00 pm. I heard on the radio that emergency crews were involved in a swift water rescue in the large drainage channel that separates the east and west bound lanes on I-40. According to one website, one person was killed and five others rescued from swift water in flooding arroyos around the metro area this afternoon. I checked the rain gage first thing when I got home and we received 0.18 inch of rain at our house. The National Weather Service website is reporting 0.17 inch of rain for Albuquerque.
