Rain in the Desert

We had rain last week. I emailed these photos out, not everyone understood why a flooded intersection was such a big deal. Kind of like snow in Raleigh NC it shuts the place down.

Not that it NEVER rains, just that it happens infrequently and when it does it floods because they don’t have storm drains.

I come from the world of rain, torrential pouring rain. That’s what a hurricane really is – tons of water with wind behind it. Apparently they have something similar here that is a combination of a rainstorm and a sandstorm.

Interesting concept, but honestly windblown liquid sandpaper is truly something I can live without experiencing.
