Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

The New Mexico rain

We're still waiting on the monsoon, but it does appear to be, finally, on the way. There's plenty of thunderstorm activity over in Arizona, but we've had a high-pressure cell parked just north of us that has kept the weather from moving into New Mexico. Finally, that high-pressure cell is weakening and moving eastward, so Rio Arriba County is at last getting some action. It's not the full-scale monsoon yet, but we did have increasing clouds this afternoon and evening, and a fifteen-minute downpour followed by a couple of hours of intermittent showers.
