The rains arrived at mid-afternoon. The slow-moving thunderstorms dropped torrents of wind-driven rain for nearly 45 minutes.




Running late, after wrapping up a practice day at the JN Ranch, my daughters and I returned home in the middle of the downpour. Other than standing water on the roadway, the only problem was dodging certain drivers who continued to drive oblivious to the conditions. While the storm was blowing over the city, the lights flickered while Laurie was performing an operation. Her surgical microscope almost shutdown during the power surge before it settled down.

While this torrent brought about 2 inches of rain, another round of heavy rain is expected later tonight.
