Wow, it's coming down hard and fast. Lightening lit up the sky in my area. I'm heading up the mountains tomorrow. Expect mud!

I'm in Pomona. Actually the lightening was more intense a little west of us. I'm guessing over San Gabriel Valley. It came down so hard it sounded like hail. It stopped now though. Big Bear should be fun tomorrow!

Though it's brief, I'm glad it had a chance to moisturize the dry vegetations. I'm sure Norcal would've appreciated this even more then we did.

Lots of rain between Barstow and Las Vegas today. It was very hot and humid the whole way (on my way to Ouray). After Las Vegas the rain vanished and it got warmer.

Yup it was pouring out in the desert. Playing at Stoddard Wells and saw my first flash flood. I was driving up a wash and it got really wooped out so I pulled out of it, got around the rough section and pulled up to the wash just in time to see the water rush down the wash. One second completely dry the next it was rushing at least 20 miles per hour. Absolutely incredible!

Went up to Big Bear today and it rained hard a couple of times too. It seem very localized and transient. Wheeled some trails on the NE side of Big Bear with SSC and had a blast! The rain made the ground dust free and there were some good mud pools to splash through. I'll post some pics up later.
