Looks like it may have arrived in southern Utah. Thunderstorms and rain this afternoon. Hopefully we see enough precipitation in it to offset the lightening caused wildfire starts.

I really miss the smell of rain.

It was pretty anti climatic at my house in Cedar. Only got the sidewalk wet a couple of times.
I heard Enoch got hit pretty good.
Disappointing.

It was a very nice break from the heat today. We went for a drive in the unitas today. 40 degrees and rain. So refreshing!

About 2:30pm Thursday in Midvale it was a downpour! .18" of rain in 20 minutes. Total for the storm was .23" Sure was great to be out in it and the smell of dry vegetation getting wet was a welcome.

Now the question is can we keep getting these storms intermittently throughout the monsoon season? Finally getting some storm again was great, but if we go right back to triple digit temps and dry days again for weeks on end then it was just a pointless tease that won't have even mattered.

The long term will definitely be the goal but it lifted my spirits nonetheless. I know Cedar has multiple days of forecasted storm potentials ahead. I'll take it.

That rain storm, and 10 more like it won’t pull us out of the drought. But even if another storm doesn’t come soon, it wasn’t worthless. It’s certainly better to have one nice storm then no storms at all.

We were supposed to jump right back up to 100s tomorrow, but weather looks to be changing and it will be cooler. I’ll take it!

Looks like rain this week.



At some point, all those prayers being said in Sunday Worship meetings across Utah are going to work....
