    Not exactly fireworks, but...

    Got a microburst with big marble sized hail. Boy was it loud! Way louder than the July 4 fireworks. Temperature went from 102 degrees to 69 in ten minutes.
    We were hoping for some rain to cool things off - be careful what you wish for. At least I hadn't started the barbecue yet.

    You may need a hard hat to BBQ Jessie.

    What time? I was watching the radar on NWS webpage about 3 and wondering if you were going to get pummeled. It was probably still north of you then, but I have a bit of trouble guessing where Placitas is without it marked. We're getting lotsa rumbles but no serious rain yet, all just a little to the east. Just got back from a cookout, lots of grilled chicken, beef, and pork over a juniper fire. Stay dry Jesse (hail is great for chilling beer btw).
