It rained about an hour on Wednesday, got everything wet and made driving horrible.
Today we had a mini hurricane for about 2 hours. The wind started first bending the trees and blowing sand all over, then the thunder, lightening and the downpour, it rained sideways in sheets, you couldn't see to the next block. I know, big deal, it rained. It's a big deal in the desert here, there is NO drainage system anywhere so when it rains, the water floods everywhere and stays because there is no place to drain it to. Mosquitos and bugs will be out everywhere.
My kitchen floor is soaked, the carpets 2 feet inside all my doors are soaked, the window sills have leaked and I heard a drip, drip, drip somewhere inside the hollow part of the bedroom closet but we can't get to it.
The patio is flooded again but my gardener is out there with his squeegee cleaning it up
This picture was taken from my yard across the street
This picture is looking down to the end of the street
this is looking up to the main road
It's still dark and overcast in parts of the area so don't know if there will be more rain or not but the temperature sure did cool off about 10 degrees.
No plans for new years at all, it's just another day, just another start to a new week, another month. I never did see what all the hoopla was all about.
