We heard a warning of a dust storm moving in a few hours ago, but it didn't get here. It's breezy and cool so far. The forecast looks ominous, but who knows; rain may pass us up again. Sprinkles anyone?

Not a drop in Tucson. Crying Just lots of wind and warm air. It is getting darker looking to the west. You guys are going to get it first. Rolling my eyes.

A steady rain started about 7:00 this morning. Hurray! Rain barrel is now full and we have .30 in the gauge. Green Grin! It should be a wet and wild ride across town to church this morning ! Angel

Yep. Nearly 2 inches in Lexie's kiddie pool. Lots of hail in late morning. Looked like snow! Hallelujah! Very nice.
Intermittent sun at the moment and very pretty!

My daughter Allie lives 25 minutes from me in Anthem and she just texted to tell me it's snowing at her house and sticking to the trees.

Got rain! Finally. I was out and about today and on the way home about 6 o'clock, there was a beautiful ground to ground double rainbow in the eastern sky. Just gorgeous.

A nice gentle rain woke us this morning. Smiling So far we have received .35. It is still heavily overcast but I see a tiny strip of blue in the northwest skies. Wish it would rain all day ! Thumbs up
