Yap, yap, bark, (more thunder) BARK!, WOOF!, WOOF!

All this thunder but no rain yet. This is the only place in the country where I have seen virga (from Wikipedia.com: In meteorology, virga is precipitation that falls from a cloud but evaporates before reaching the ground. At high altitudes the precipitation falls mainly as ice crystals before melting and finally evaporating; this is usually due to compressional heating because the air pressure increases closer to the ground. It is very common in the desert.). It's very unsatisfying to experience.
