Crazy Denver Weather

After work last night, I got in a quick run in then headed home just in time for last evening’s thunderstorm.  For the uninitiated, Denver frequently has afternoon storms in the summer.  Typically, they roll in mid-afternoon, dump water for fifteen minurtes or so, then head out into the plains to pound Kansas. 

This year, however, the storms have been quite impressive.  Monday night it rained for hours.  Tuesday, it rained as hard as I have ever seen it — sheets you could bairly see through — accompanied by lightening so frequent it was like a strobe light. 

Yesterday, it was time for marble-sized hail.  In my Jeep soft-top, it was like being inside a drum.
