I am currently 'rained in'. Our desert doesn't absorb water well. Half of our roads are closed and there is standing water everywhere we look. We are, however, seeing the sun again for the first time since Sunday. Here are some pictures I took yesterday and today of the amount of water we have.
The wash in the dirt lot across the street from my house.
More of the wash.
The wash, further up.
See? We don't handle water well. Our desert is now a lake.
