According to NOAA, we are in a "monsoonal trough" and boy do I believe it.
It started raining around 10:30 this morning and has yet to let up (it is now 4:15). It poured so much in 20 minutes that they decided to end school at 12:00. Walking around campus was fun: ankle and shin deep water.
Either way, everyone was happy to go home early on a Monday!
