|Kitty watching a downpour. I know it's good when there is a small stream flowing down the alley.|
The North American Monsoon returned this year. We've had several good downpours and a few periods of light to moderate rain. It's a huge relief after two summers of no rain.
Unfortunately there has been some flash flooding in areas downstream of burn scars, but on the whole I think we are all grateful for the rain.
I hope it keeps going for a few weeks so we will be setup for the usually dry fall.
|Hail or graupel last week. The Monsoon is delivering this year.|
I'm trying to solve the riddle of getting things done for my day job, planning more necessary travel, and living my life in a way that makes me happy. It's not always easy, but at least we've gotten some rain this summer.
I also keep training for my goal of bicycling up Snowbowl Road as I watch the Tour de France. Everybody has to dream.
