More Monsoon Action!

The storms have missed us a lot the past several weeks. We seem to be in a spot where they blow by on either side, but often leave us dry. Today was an exception. Nice downpour this morning, finally! I went out to see if the Big Bug was running and sure enough, it was! The storm also dropped our temps by 15 degrees, although it is still very sticky out there.

It was still raining when I went out, so the picture was taken from inside my car. So nice to see the Big Bug get some action again.

Rain and Snow. Finally!

Snow On The MountainsWe finally got some moisture in Big Bug country. Rain around the house, but snow at a bit higher elevations.

Water

We got so much rain, I was sure the Big Bug would be running. As soon as there was a break in the storm, I said to my husband, “let’s go take a look at the creek!” Well, I’ve been wrong before. There was some water, but no flow. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. It has been weeks since we got any precipitation at all, so I am most grateful for this storm. We did get a ton of rain, but everything was so dry it must have just soaked it all up like a giant sponge!
