Heavy t-storms rolling thru right now. Can't see XMAS Mtns from BBMI. Corazones etc appear to be getting pounded.  :icon_smile:

Got .2 of an inch at our Adobe 25 sMiles north of Study Butte.

The short rainstorm delayed our cooking fajitas at our site in the Basin on Saturday.  We were starving too!  It was still worth it to see the rain clouds crawling over Casa Grande.  Such an amazing place!

So far nothing but threats and empty promises. I'll post when we see something substantial
 in the area.
