    Deluge

    We got .18 inches of rain last night. I know it doesn't sound like a lot to most of you, but when you live in the driest state in the nation...that's enough to get out and scrape the driveway to get rid of the ruts

    Sharon,

    Be careful in all that rain! Whew! With .18" that's almost enough to wash away your house!

    How much do you normally get in a year? I don't think the total volume here is all that much, just rains very often.

    I miss the big thunder storms and lighting of the midwest. You could smell the rain coming.

    Here, I just feel like a frog. Always wet. (It's not that bad, just seems that way sometimes!)
    That's not even a smile! That's just a bunch of teeth playing with my mind!

    Supposedly Reno gets 1/2 of its precipitation from December through March.

    My records for this year shows a grand total of 1.7" so far (from 1/1/2011)....

    Better start doing the rain dance some more...

    I was able to do a summary report. Since December 1st, I've recorded 2.62" of precipitation...

    To quote Bill Murray from Ground Hog day "Did you want to talk about the weather or were you just making chitchat?"

    Yes, I'm a weather geek and every day I record the previous days precipitation for http://www.cocorahs.org/

    We only get 5-7" total a year. I love the thunder storms in the summer (Brent hates them because of the wild fire risk). It can snap, crackle and pop like crazy and we either do or don't get a downpour, but sure is pretty to watch. Electricity usually goes out as well.

    Hey Sharon, ever been through an Arizona Haboom, lightning, thunder and wind but no rein.
