Brief, Heavy Storm At House

I have been working on other projects today, not watching the weather very closely. Around 3:30 pm MST, I heard thunder and checked outside. A storm was just to the north on the Catalina Foothills - photo above. This storm propagated to the south-southwest, with the heaviest rains apparently falling just off to the east of the house. We had a period of moderate to heavy rain, with estimated wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph. We picked up 0.35" of rain in about 15 minutes or so. The radar image below, from the much improved CoD weather page, is for 4:07 pm MST. The strong storm at the north-center of the image was nearly overhead at that time.
