Weather problems

I live in the southern Nevada desert, where we are know for our hot, dry summers.  Many people choose this time of year to visit and get out of the cold weather.  However, this winter has been very wet.  My yard is so saturated with rain water that it can't absorb what is now falling.  I took some photos of my flooded yard.

Since my little dog is a dachshund, with very short legs, his belly drags in the water and he prefers to hibernate with me.
I took some photos of the mountains surrounding our valley yesterday.  The mountains are getting lots of snow, while we get rain.

It will be interesting to see how the mountains look after all this rain here today.  They are still buried in the clouds.

  1. What a cute dog! Hunkering down in bad weather is a great thing to do. Sorry about the joint pain, though. I had 8 inches of snow a few weeks ago, and I stayed put with my cat, warm blankets, and good books.
