A Little Precip (Very Little)

Tortugas and the Organ Mountains
For much of the morning yesterday it seemed as if it could start raining at any moment; it didn't.  Late afternoon got sunny, and precipitation didn't begin until about 10:30 p.m.  It never rained hard nor for long.

Due to clouds and high humidity this morning the temperature was noticeably cooler; we're only supposed to reach 88F today.  Prediction is that after 10:00 a.m. thunderstorms could begin.  It's 10:45 now, and nada.

We sure need the precip, but area flood warnings make us worry that it could be too much.
