Rain Drain

Rather to my surprise, nearly all of the standing water that I photographed yesterday was gone by this morning, and that was before the sun came out.

Passing Storm
Here's what it looked like yesterday afternoon. This morning, nothing but slightly damp ground. Our ground here must be more permeable than I thought. Presumably that's why there's so much green stuff trying to take over the fences and the down-spout on the rain gutter.

Weather Underground says we got about 22 mm of rain yesterday. That's something like 20% of Fernley's annual average rainfall. No wonder it didn't soak in immediately.
