There have been some small amounts of rain over the last couple of months, but no real downpour until Saturday, August 22, 2020.

Here’s a photo of the rainbow as the rain was coming into the valley.

It was followed by a huge downpour with hail. We have a metal roof and it sounded like someone was throwing rocks at the cabin. It came down hard.

The small white spots in the photo at actually hail falling to the ground. You can see my shadow at the bottom as I hold my camera up over my head.

All they had to do was reinstate the fire restrictions and the rain came.
