The Rain on the Plain

We are actually having a full fledged rainy day. I have experienced 3 rainy days since being down here in the Yuma area, and two of them amounted to perhaps 20 raindrops in their combined entirety.

Today, however, is taking itself more seriously, and it is actually doing a full out drizzle, and has been for hours. Everyone is cozying down with books, generators, and tvs along with whatever indoor activities they can muster, or making it a go to town day.

I have taken some shots of the wet, as I don't expect to see a whole lot of it in the region.

Tomorrow promises some interesting sights from the side yard as I am told a training exercise will invade our space some time tomorrow. Stay tuned, and hopefully the photo display will entertain you.

For now, here are the wet ridge shots:

I was trying to capture the water on the window, but the reflection is nice, and the dry marks under the rig provides a contrast

You can see the water trail on the water tank, and in the shot of Ken taking a shot, you can see the water on the road

This is just a water accumulation in the chair shot to prove that there was enough to make a puddle.

At this point, it is safe to say that it is not a flash flood level of rain by any stretch.

I have discovered what I believe to be the difference between allowing you to zoom my attachments versus being stuck with what attaches. If I start by clicking on "blog this" in Picasa, it will allow you zoomability, so I will continue my thoughts in that fashion.

So briefly, I bid you,



  1. You get rain - we get snow... a foot of it, at least. And -31 with the wind chill. I've heard it is quite pretty after rain in the desert.

  2. I was told that last year had a higher amount of rain for this time of year, and January was all abloom.
    More rain is coming, so if the blooms arrive, I will be sure to post about it.
    As for the snow, all I can say is, " Ewwwwww!!!!"

    Stay warm, and we'll see you in the spring :)
