Water in the desert

There was a LOT of water running here in our desert this past weekend as a huge Pacific storm rolled through the valley.  From closed roads to flooded washes, we were ALL slightly displaced by this storm.  I haven't seen this much water running...for YEARS!   :-)  We certainly need the water!  The first two photos show the water running down the Whitewater Canyon river.  This water will soak into the soil for the huge aquifer serving the entire Coachella Valley.  The bottom two photos show water in the Whitewater wash, which runs the entire length of our valley.  This is actually in Rancho Mirage, CA, next to the library.  There are golf courses all along the length of this wash and they were wiped out by the flowing water.
