Yesterday on my way home from work, there were menacing clouds coming in, but by about 7:00 pm they looked like they had gone on their way. BUT, about 9:30 I started hearing thunder, so I went outside to look and yes we had some distant lightening and thunder. Fast forward to 1:00 a.m. this morning and crash, I woke up with a start along with Tiah and Star who were snoozing also on my bed. The house lit up and thunder crashed right after it. This went on without any pause for hours along with pouring rain. When I woke up at 6:00 this morning it was still pouring. It poured for a few more hours then let up. On my way home from work, it started pouring again. Is this the desert or the tropics? Good grief! Now I'm not trashing the rain, we need it just like everyone else, but this has been a rain storm of epic proportions (ok, a slight exaggeration) but it's a lot of rain for the desert. We tend to get flash floods and good stuff like that when it rains like this. I passed a area of land that is usually dry on my way home. It looks like a lake. Talk about mosquitoes, we'll be fighting them that's for sure unless everything dries up quick. Right now it's still raining and it's the next night! I'll let ya'll know if I'm gonna need diving equipment anytime soon. I mean I have to get to work somehow!
