Our six-week drought is breaking, with good rains yesterday afternoon, and more early this morning. When the sun comes up, I bet I'll find my cistern is full again. In honor of the event, I present this video, showing a "wet microburst" that resembles the effect of a helicopter dumping a load of water on a wildfire.
Related, much worse news: three firefighters were killed yesterday in Washington state when their vehicle crashed and they were overrun by a wildfire. The chilling news from officials: "the crash did not kill them."
