It will have to be some tropical storm style rain for it to leave any puddles. The 2inch cracks in the ground at my place will suck it right up.

Hoping you all get some soon. We have a heavy monsoon weekend coming up they are saying.
Mountains may get too much at once.

We only got up into the upper 70's today.

Site is not very work friendly if you start surfing so you've been warned...never thought I would see water as a commodity title worthy on the narco blogs. I've been spooked for a while but this article ramped it a hair. I love bird season, but feel a big dump in the rain shed is more important.

Falcon is getting skinny.

Wytex, why are you picking a fight? The thermometer next to my bed is showing 107* on the front porch right now. Now it faces west but come on....its even hot in the shade right now! I can't wait to see 70* highs again!

Sorry sir, we're supposed to bounce back to 87 next 2 days then get the monsoon. Could be issues in the burn scar areas up higher.
Unfortunately it looks like all of it circles right around you all.

Are you forgetting that rain only comes at the start of dove season if it's dry every where but you have water in your tanks. If it's dry and your tanks are dry no rain till after bird season.
