Well, monsoon season hit the ground running yesterday.
It was officially the first day of the season, started out at 85F, around noon it started hailing and it was still like 75F (how does that happen!).

Then it rained on and off, then we got flash flood warnings for this county scrolling underneath the local TV station, then we had a big thunder and lightning storm during the Lakers/Celtics game and I was afraid the power would go out during the last part of the game (it didn't).

Phone went out for a while, internet was iffy but held.

Rained on and off all night long.

This morning, it smells glorious!

Egglady, we just got teased most of the day. I don't know if we even got spit upon. But it was cloudy. I could smell the creosote but it didn't make it here.

LUCKY YOU!!! I have the fresh rain smell, but that's all. It sprinkled at my house, but not enough to measure. But at 10pm I could see the lightning in the southern Sac area and was able to hear occasional distant thunder. In a normal summer wet weather pattern, those storms that form south and west of Ruidoso eventually move over Ruidoso. Yesterday they didn't. But the cooling effect was wonderful after the temp hit 93 and dropped to 76 by 3pm.

I was VERY surprised to see the huge area of cloud cover on the satellite image this morning - covering much of the central state. But it didn't save El Paso from a second record setting day of 110F temps.

I think it rained a little in Alamo late last night. At least just enough for all of the dust that got kicked up tio stick to my truck.

Ruidoso does a good job of enforcement, as does The Downs, where there are full-time animal control officers.

It's not a matter of not allowing animals at all, or leash laws. It is the number. White Mountain allows no more than TWO--I have more than that.

Mine are contained within a fenced yard, and are always on leash when they are with me away from my property.

So it's the number that gets me, not the other restrictions in place--which are good ones, BTW. I LIKE leash laws.

I remembered later that you'd explained that before. I apologize for not remembering.

I know a woman here who has so many cats and dogs she refuses to tell even her best friends the number. I suspect she may well not know how many she has. And she lives in the prestigious "Upper Canyon" area! Forgot to mention - and at least one PIG! She claims she is simply a lover of animals but the fact is she keeps them locked in portable kennels most of the day. She has a very small fenced in area for them to exercise in, and that's it!

A classic hypocrite is what she is. If keeping pets in small cages day after day after day isn't animal cruelty, I'd like to know what it is! We're not talking hamsters here - but rather dogs of all sizes. And she claims to care more for animals than people!

PS Her cats are allowed to run wild and have made a wreck of the interior of the garage she allows them to occupy, to say nothing of every screened window and door on her house! I'm just happy I don't live anywhere near her.
