Ranch Receives Much Needed Rain
By Mary Jo Shelton
June 14, 2002

Just after lunch, I noticed a thunderstorm developing just to our Northwest.  For an hour it grew until I could see that it was raining on the Spanish Peaks.  It grew larger still and began to spread westward.  I couldn't take my eyes off of it and prayed to God that it didn't miss us, but... that there would be no lightening?  I wondered if God would mind if I added that. :-)  Around 2 o'clock it began, small hail first, then rain.  Rain, hail then rain and hail mixed.  And lots of it.  What a blessing!  I have no clue just how much we got but the pictures should tell the story.  And I will end by quoting the gentleman reading the Trinidad Complex Fire daily report to head quarters that I heard a few moments ago on our fire radio.  He said, "Fire activity on Friday afternoon, June 14th... Non-existent."  Amen.
