Default Enjoying the rain!

I am sitting at my table working on my computer with the windows open listening to the sweet sound of the rain outside. This is a rare occurrence here in the valley so I plan to take full advantage of it! I love the sun, but do miss the occasional rain.

Oh good call on the open windows thing! I was about to go crank the AC on (since it's 79.2 in the house ) but then I looked outside and it's only 61! No sounds of rain, but the birds sound very happy and active out there and the smell of fresh rain is great. We got 0.08" here are my house.

Wasn't it you looking at beefing up your insulation? Sounds like it's fine!

It rained pretty heavy in northern Tempe this morning for about ten minutes then quit.

Earlier this week they were predicting we were going to get real washout but I guess it's not meant to be.

One of the only regions in North America where rain is news...ahhhhhh I love it here even though many take it for granted/are jaded, blaise and don't understand what they have.

Live somewhere else for a minute then let's talk.
