Yeah, so it's finally raining here in the desert. And in many ways it's fantastic, but in other ways it's horrible.
Each summer, usually in August, we get rain, it's actually monsoon season. The pacific ocean winds and the winds from the gulf of Mexico bring rain to our front door. It usually rains for about a half hour in the early afternoon, just about every day, during monsoon season.
This week however, it's rained for several hours a day most days.
This floods the arroyos, this one is across the street from our house. And it floods our street.
Sorry the picture is blurry, but the lights in front our our house and you can see the fire in the background on the mountain, maybe 3 miles away.
We are safe for now, I don't think the fire will move into town, but I'll keep you posted.
Side note: Day 21 bloodwork tomorrow and follow up appointment next Monday.
