First, this sight yesterday afternoon was interesting to me and I thought you should see it.
Second, it would appear that I hit the “publish” button before I intended to, before I really got going and figured out what I was going to say. I was no where near that button!
Third, this will be an assembly job, if anyone is out there, this piece will be gradually coming together, the nuerous errors being corrected on the fly, if it ever really does come together….
Maybe I will deflect attention with a spaghetti plot, get people wondering about that. Yeah, that’s a good idea. They won’t know what to make of it while I think up something to write.
Next, here is some rain data from Pima County. Then, some from the USGS. Dan Saddle, up there on Oracle Ridge looks to have gotten the most in a nearby gauge in the Catalinas, with 0.83 inches measured. Was that really the most that fell up in our mountains yesterday. Of course not! Not enough gauges to hit all the cores that struck those mountains, and its without doubt than 1-2 inches fell in the best ones.
In conclusion, Q. E. D.
In spite of the numerous heavy shafts of rain around yesterday, none formed above Catalina, except at the north end of town over there by Edwin Road where they had quite a dump in the middle of the afternoon. Only 0.12 inches here in the Heights of Sutherland. Still it was nice to see those Cumulonimbus blossom into such majestic clouds yesterday. So, today may be it for them, at least close to us. Here are a few more sights from yesterday’s fine day:
