Most of the time, we're used to this in spring, especially May, even June. Periodic downpours that leave the gutters straining to hold the water.

But not as often in September. But given our fire danger, smoke and weather issues, the rain is welcome.  It let up somewhat with 5 minutes or so late Wednesday morning, but while it lasted, we all got our cars washed BIG TIME at the Palace in Pasco, the home of Newstalk870, 97Rock, 98.3TheKEY, HOT975 and 102.7KORD.  Shortly after we shot this, the downpour RETURNED, only with thunder to boot.  Wheee!
