Today I was awakened with the lovely sounds of a big thunderstorm hitting. Lots of thunder and lightning and heavy rains. We got about 71/100’s of an inch just in the morning (I didn’t check the rain gauge again in the afternoon). Very rainy and thundery. Kurt the thunderphobe hound did very well all things considered. Mostly just curled up in a corner.

I went out for the midday walk and the sun had come back out. 75degrees and 70% humidity. Pretty amazingly sticky for Arizona.

Lots of work to get done today. Spent a lot of time on the phone.

This was around 45min-1hour after the rain let up. You can still see water flowing…


Some standing water:


Some pretty flowers:
