When it rains, it sometimes really does pour

Photo by Jim Keyworth
In the midst of the worst of three winter storms pummeling the Rim Country, thoughts of building an ark enter a rain-idled mind.  This photo was taken at 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21.  If you don't recognize the location, it's McLane Road and Main Street looking south.  The humane society is across the "river" on the right.  At the time the photo was taken, a grand three-storm total of about 5.5 inches had been unofficially recorded in my Mesa del Caballo rain gauge -- with plenty more forecast.  (That same gauge recorded 14.3 inches for all of 2009, and didn't reach the 5.5 inch mark until May 21.)  Don't miss Friday's Roundup because we're betting they're going to declare the drought over -- for the third time.
