The remnants of Hurricane, and later Tropical Storm, Bud is moving into the area and we are now getting light, but steady rain with occasional heavier rain. This'll save me from having to water my trees and plants this weekend. Vehicles passing by on Interstate 40 are kicking up water behind them.

We are supposed to get thunderstorms this morning, but so far I haven't seen or heard anything. I am looking forward to a light show.

I stepped outside and took the photos that accompany this blog post.
I was planning to go to this weekend's Lion's Club Rodeo today at Red Rock Park near Gallup, but it appears that's not going to happen.

The electricity has been flickering on and off and I had to re-set my electronic clocks.
The rain is welcome as this area has been parched from a drought.
