Rain On....Uluru!

ULTRA-RARE Never See it again view of Uluru!

In a once-in-a-lifetime event, Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, experienced almost 3 inches of rain on one day! Normal rainfall totals are less than 6 inches per year.

The torrential downpour left Uluru dripping wet and tourists and tour guides alike scrambling for their cameras. The event took place a week ago on October 14th.

'Most residents of Central Australia know that rain anywhere, let alone rain at the rock is rare,' 'So for a photographer to capture the rain in full pelt with the distinctive rivers and falls coming off Uluru is magically stuff indeed.' It started bucketing down just before midnight and altogether over 2.8 inches fell.

So, is this another sign of the oncoming apocalypse?

Uluru, the way it normally looks, 364 1/2 days a year.
