July 21 we had a Sierra thunderstorm with rain. It came on in the aft. from a clear morning sky, the big white clouds floating lazily in the blue, then gathering closer and blacker, then distant rolls of thunder above Night-cap, drawing nearer, a preliminary whiff of rain or spatter, then a sudden gust of rain growing heavier and finally coming into a steady deluge with the wind blowing great guns. We had the same thing on the next day. On July 23 we rode up to Kennedy Lake. On the way we had a fine view of Relief Peak and Kennedy Peak. Again a storm burst, of great violence, about 11:30 o'clock. We took refuge in a cabin but the deluge changed to hail as large as moth balls! So the horses were brought into the cabin too. It rained 1.40 inches in about 1 1/2 hrs. acc. to the rain-gauge at Kennedy Lake.
