We had a wonderful and welcome surprise today... rainfall. However, we could have foregone the lightening and thunder. The rain gauge indicates less than an inch, but the steady downpour, a gully washer some might call it, has me questioning that small amount. Nonetheless, rain is rain, and whatever amount we received, gratefulness abounds.
Rain and thunderstorms is quite the unusual event here in the summer months. We generally have about three months without a drop of moisture. Rather bizarre it seems to have rain all winter and a summer that is bone dry.
