We Got a Little Rain Today

May 21, 2018  •  10 Comments


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.

Hi Julie. We could use some of your rain.
Hey Tim, oh dear, we always get more than our fair share.

Hi Cindy. In much of the western and southwestern US draught is more of the norm than the exception, but it's hard to deal with draught.

in so cal, this would be a huge amount of rain. it has been dark with clouds here with no rain. this is what i have learned to expect, now, watching every plant i grew up with, die around me, from draught. it could be progress. maybe. better worlds will arise. still it makes me very sad.
