Rains Signify the Symbolic Start of Summer

The seasonal drought that affects Mexico City (and Spring) came to a spectacular end today about 530pm, when the skies above Escandón let forth a torrential rail and hail storm.  The afternoon clouds have been building for weeks, and even let forth a few showers in the southern, and wetter, part of the city recently — but this was the first real drencher since September or October.

I’d have a few pictures of the hail… but the power (and internet) decided to quit just after the first of the booming thunderclaps… perhaps in a few days.
