Desert rain

It rained last night and early this morning. For those of you not living in the desert, let me explain that rain is an Event here. So nice to go to bed with the sound of the rain outside. I even think it helps you sleep better. Lord knows I had a fantastic night’s sleep.

And now the clouds are breaking up and the sun is poking through. Yep, January is a good month to be in Arizona.
