Well it has been a record breaking summer in the SoCal high desert! I'm not sure of the numbers but we've EXCEEDED rainfall totals by many inches I would bet. We got RAIN today & even a bit of hail toward the end of the slow moving storm! The rain gauge in our yard shows almost 1" today alone. The humidity has been awful but the beautiful storms were worth it. There has been flash flooding & warnings around the Riverside/San Bernardino county areas today. The storms seem to be clearing out this evening but more on the way in the next week they say, together with HEAT! We were sitting on the patio watching the storm arrive & I took a few pictures when I realized it was moving toward us. I started taking video & very quickly the wind came & the rain drove us back inside! It was great fun!The clouds have now re-appeared quite heavy...so maybe more rain tonight?An update...I'm watching 6pm news & it is showing our town, Yucca Valley and the streets in the lower areas are running like rivers. We are up on the mountain above town & have lots of 'cuts' in the dirt from the heavy rain running down the mountain, so I'm not surprised to see the pictures on the news.
