Raindrops

Yesterday afternoon brought a shower of rain - highly unusual for Arizona. AZ summers are used to the rain, but only late at night and for a short period of time.


Sophie and I enjoyed the rainy sidewalks and especially the water-filled street gutter. Sure it was probably quite filthy, as the water is street runoff, but do you know what a piping hot AZ street does to gutter water? It makes it feel like you're in a bath. I have to say it was quite pleasant to walk in.
