Spring Rain

Yesterday we got 5.52 inches of rain!

My house is leaking in places it's never leaked before. (I've had my roof repaired 3 times already)

It was amazing to witness and hear; it was very loud. This morning when I woke up it had stopped and it was eerily quiet.

I was going to label this post something along the lines of "record breaker" but I went to the RTS Weather website and discovered that this was not a record...not by far.

In 1995 the 24 hour record was 8.86 inches and in 1972 they got a massive 17.15 inches in one day!!! I can't even imagine. You would need scuba gear just to take out the trash!

I think I remember that rain storm in 1972. I think there was a typhoon passing by at the time.

Growing up in the desert, I absolutely love when it rains. I wonder if this will change once we're in Kwaj for a while!
