I am living in a desert. We are in the middle of a severe drought. Our friends chucklemagne and thechick are visiting and wanted to go to Balloon Fiesta. Last night I go online and buy 4 park-n-ride tickets. The weather is supposed to be ok. I wake up this morning at 5 to the sound of rain on the patio cover. A check of the radar shows one narrow band of rain directly above ABQ. It is the only rain in the entire state. It's moving like a conveyor belt from the SW to the NE. It's not moving, just cycling shower after shower over the city. The morning's mass ascension is canceled. *facepaws* *headdesk*
