  Looks like Elmo got a little rain, enough to settle the dust.

If you watched the rain shortened NASCAR race at Fontana, you would think that El Mirage, only 40 miles north would have rain also.

It was a weird band of rain that was about 100 miles east-west and 500 miles north-south that moved almost due north.

It just missed El Mirage. Valyermo 30 miles west measured 3/4".
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.
