Well I got 1.25 inches of rain yesterday and last night is rained so hard it woke me up. That's an insane amount of rain here, so much I reported it to the NWS.

In Fruita it was maybe half that but I wasn't complaining. We'll take all the rain we can get!

Enroute to a short vacation in Crested Butte, I drove from GJ to Delta on US 50 last Thursday ( 7-28 ). I was amazed at the relative greenness of the desert, even along the stretch I refer to as The Nevada Zone ( Whitewater to the outskirts of Delta ). I've never seen the desert so green in July.

Another storm yesterday evening. I was in my backyard watching heavy rain and lightening over Cedaredge. The day before I got 50mph + winds here, heavy lightning, and .35 inchs of rain in 30 minutes. This summer has been (to me) VERY hot and muggy, and the mosquitoes are insane. I've been told by nearly everyone in Delta, this just isn't normal for here. It will be interesting to see what winter brings. Everything is still VERY green. All over town people are saying, "did you see that sunset last night?" Well here it is--(view from my side yard)

Beautiful!
Still muggy back East here...dewpoint is 79, one more point than New Orleans. Paperwork at my job is crinkling up and can't be faxed because it is absorbing humidity,and the a/c at my job happens to be working for a change.
I keep checking the weather and chenopod allergen indexes for places I want to visit in the summer. Colorado has sure let me down this summer!

Well, for now anyway, the air has dried out and the humidity is back into the familiar territory of single digits. Yesterday on the weather channel, the temperature in Grand Junction was 96 and the heat index was 92. I've never seen an eastern US heat index LOWER than the thermometer reading. The dry air feels so good!
