Out like a Lion

Well July came in like a lamb but left like a LION!  On the last day of July we received another monster rain/hail storm. This storm was on the heals of a heavy irrigation cycle on Sunday night then three tenths of rain Monday evening then 1.3 inches of rain Tuesday afternoon  plus pee to marble size hail for just under an hour. The say the least the course is extremely wet. We are not complaining we need the rain. Most of the bunkers washed out again and paths and path edges are a mess, so the cleanup begins.  The heat was also on this July officially from NOAA it was the hottest July on record for Denver since 1872 when records begin. We also had 17 days of 90 or above here at the Pinery.  This summer of 2012 will definitely go  down in the record books for extreme weather events. Below is a short video of the rain. I got caught in the storm on #6 lake bathroom, boy it was really coming down.
