We Just Had An 11-inch Rain In Las Vegas!
We're all so happy!
At first it was only a fourteen-inch rain. But then it intensified, and became an 11-inch rain. Soon it was a 2-inch rain. At its peak, it was a 1/4-inch rain. It's gone now.
You see, we don't get much rain out here. So we don't measure rain by the depth of rain in a rain gauge (whatever that is), but by how far apart the drops are on the pavement.
This was the best rain we've gotten in many months!
[In all seriousness, it really has been many months since we've seen more than a trace. We're in a multi-year drought. Parts of town got 2/3 of an inch today, but we only got a trace. The moist air should be around for another few days, so we're hoping tomorrow or the next day, we'll get enough to measure.]
