After I got out of that deluge I came to a dry area. Even saw a dust devil. Crazy country.

I was elated enough to have water to pump. By morning my tanks should be at 2/3rds capacity. Probably a big gully washer will come tomorrow, rendering my staying up all night to pump unnecessary. But I'm not willing to risk it. Just as easily this could be my last runoff for 6 months or worse. Don't want to even contemplate the "worse."
While in town today I practiced photographing common odes just to become better with the camera settings. Got a couple of fairly decent shots but left them on my town computer when I came rushing down here. The lighting problem is a little better, but still not as sharp as they should be. Not giving up. Never.
