We had a surprise rain shower roll through parts of our desert yesterday afternoon. Dark clouds, grumbling thunder and some lightning flashes. We actually had a pretty good downpour for about 15 minutes. Flash flood warnings issued were issued for some nearby areas.
The rain brought some welcome cooler temperatures. We've already been over 100º a couple of times this year. Normally it would be in the 90's now.
"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."
~John Rushkin, English art critic and social thinker (1819-1900)
