We today here in downtown Strawberry Arizona, as Mary McCann a DJ known as Bone Mama used to say, an outbreak of weather. It crashed just as I was about to enjoy a fine lunch of peanut butter and jelly, and it occurred to me this would be something worth trying to video with the HD capabilities of my new Canon T1i.

This video was pretty much right from the camera uploaded to flickr (I deleted in QuickTime Pro the first minute which was not so exciting, to get it below the 500Mb flickr limit).

Right after this my cable internet blinked out for about an hour, leaving me to suck the net through the straw of my mobile wireless card (which seems to like hanging up at random intervals of 1-4 minutes until you cuss it out). Of course, I should rewind back a few years, when my internet here was a 24kbps dialup to Payson.

The rain dumped like a bucket, and my accurate wheel barrow gauge marked exactly… about 1.5 inches of rain.

Bring it on, the thirsty trees and plants around here did not get enough of the stuff.
