Desert Rain

We woke up this morning to the gentle pitter patter of rain on the patio roof. Our morning is cloudy and wet. For a while at least...

It smells wonderful outside. Being the desert we get a lot of dust in the air around here. So a little rain really clears the air.

This has been the wettest winter/spring in the 20 years that I have lived here. It's been nice.

The rain is not going to last. The sun is already breaking through the clouds and once that starts things usually end quickly. Oh well it was a nice way to wake up this morning. And morning showers are better now when the temperature is around 50 instead of a month from now when it will be pushing 90. Hot and humid don't mix well.
