For all my friends and family in the East and the Midwest:
The following was an actual conversation at work, none of which I am making up.
J: Looks like we may get some rain.
B: We got a few sprinkles yesterday, but it didn’t amount to much.
J: Yeah, we got a few drops. Everything helps, I guess.
R (walking in): Hey, look, it’s raining!
M (coming in a few minutes later): Look, it’s really coming down!
J (a few minutes later): Well, that sure didn’t last long.
D (walking in from his office): Looks like I missed the rain.
Such is life in the semi-desert. Rain is really an event.
