Cloudy morning~Weekend Reflections 022010


I awoke this morning to rain. It started raining about 4:00 a.m. and by 5:00 a.m., everything was covered with moisture. Our desert typically gets about 4 inches of rain a year. This year, we've already had over 5 inches of rain, and that's only in January and February. We are anticipating a bountiful wildflower show this spring, which isn't too far away. Another storm is already out in the Pacific, due to come in Monday afternoon. I LOVE the smells in the desert after a storm, though, so I'm not complaining! I took a walk up at the Santa Rosa Mountains visitor center. The quail were out, the little yellow finches were out, the doves were out, the sun was peeking out from behind the clouds...aaaahhhh...what a way to start the day! Weekend Reflections for February 20, 2010.

Lovely, moody shot. We've finally had some decent rain, and are keeping our fingers crossed for a great wildflower show this year. Kathy

Rain. Yes I remember. It's water and not snow or ice falling from the heavens. Delicious and warm.
