Rain drenches Catalina! Mt Lemmon passes four inches!

Sutherland Heights total as of 5:34 AM (tipping bucket): 0.90 inches!  No way was this much expected from this keyboard.  Looks like the rain is going to continue for a few more hours, too.  Just terrific!  Update:  1.21 inches in CoCoRahs gauge at 7 AM!

Let us look noew at the precursor clouds from yesterday:

Sorry, no images.  It took more than 2 h to upload several images yesterday, and now, as also has happened since downloading the latest version of WP, several seconds before I see what’ve typed!

This has been going on for weeks and weeks, ending the fun in  blogging.

Will be spending the next few weeks either moving to another hosting site, blogspot, or figuring out why WP has become unusable (again).

The End.
