Magic Rain!

Remember my road kill cactus that bit the dust? Well, a funny thing happened after a day of roaring winds,


a few broken pots, and 0.50 inches of rain,


Road Kill came back to the living! Our Arizona desert rain is magic! It lifts everyone's spirits and quickly brings life back into the desert! It will be short lived though--




I'll be complaining in a few days of the humidity!

We've had two rainy mornings in a row, and two days below 100! Woo Hoo! Of course, it started to get muggy this afternoon, but I'm not complaining...

Julie- I'm sure Aiyana got some of my rain!

No, I didn't get any rain here the day you had yours, but I did get some tonight. I'll see in the morning just how much. Short but it came down hard for a few minutes. Certainly didn't help all that much!

Only 0.11 inches. Pretty disgusting.

It is Magic! It has been far to sparse so far this year, but I guess that makes it all the more magical when it comes.
