This is the view of my patio this morning. When it rains in the desert, it pours! The first photo is my window, looking toward my back yard. The second photo is the puddle that is growing next to my patio. To take liberty with the lyrics of another song - Rainy days on Sunday get me down. Actually, rainy days anytime get me down.
We've had 1.2 inches of rain yesterday and today, so far. This may not seem like a lot to some of you, but we normally only get 6 inches of rain a year here in the desert. After all the rain we had in December, we are already well ahead of our normal rainfall. I'm sure it is snowing in the nearby mountains, but they are hidden in the clouds.
