It’s raining again. Not as violent as last night but moisture nonetheless.
Good thing I skipped watering this morning. We got a lot of rain this afternoon. When I started my drive home from Castle Rock it started hailing and was nearly a whiteout. Denver didn’t get nearly as severe weather but it was certainly raining at home so the yard was given a drink.
As I left the office this evening it started raining. As I began the drive up over the mountain pass back toward Denver it started hailing. It was incredibly loud and very difficult to see. It appears as though it didn’t hail at home, however, so our flowers are safe. It did start to rain shortly after I arrived home. Guess I was wrong about the unreliable nature of this morning’s weather report. Question remains if there will be enough moisture from this evening’s brief rain to mean no need to water tomorrow morning. I may risk it and skip the morning drink.
It’s raining and this sounds like it might get in the way of our star gazing this evening. For once, I hope that it stops and that it clears up.
A tornado warning was just issued for Denver County. It isn’t even raining near our house right now but apparently it is raining in northwest Denver. It isn’t on for very long but we could hear the emergency sirens from the school down the street.
More rain. At this rate, I may never have to water again. Famous last words. This one isn’t particularly powerful so it may not last that long.
Because it rained yesterday and because it was supposed to rain this evening I decided not to water this morning. Good thing. Tonights storm is intense: Hail, flooding, etc. Even though we cleared the down-spouts already once this season it looks like they are blocked again. Also, one of the down spots in the front of the house has sprung a leak. Check out this video:

The thunderstorms this evening were intense! This is so strange for Denver!
Looks like the rain finally came. Sounds like a good spring thunderstorm. Some spectacular lightening too!
Looks like my watering this morning might have been a bit wastful. This afternoon the sky opened up and dropped some more moisture. It rained for a while and then hailed. Perhaps that hail will push my grass seed into the grown.
