When It Rains…


it pours!!!

Here in the Arizona desert, we don’t usually get very many storms like this one.  I’m not sure if you read/watch the weather reports for Mesa, AZ so I’ll just tell you what’s been going on.  A HUGE storm came in and dumped about 5 inches of measurable rain,  winds of 50 to 75 mph,  grounded airplanes, and tornados!

 

This is a picture out our window  Thursday morning… the clouds were so heavy and low that they dropped below the mountains.

 

this morning we woke up to a flooded yard.

 

The sky still has rain clouds lingering today

 

if you look closely, you can see it’s still raining.

 

In  Mesa, we have parks where all the rain water drains into.  my hubby took this picture this evening (about 4:00pm) on his way to work.   You can’t even see the picnic table.  it’s covered with water but should be under the ramada. Notice where the top of the garbage can is! 

Although this looks and sounds scary, it was exciting to live though and thankfully WE had no damage and we are all safe.

    Scary stuff! We live in Florida with similar heat but different humidity levels. When we get rain like that the ground gets over saturated and next thing you know the big beautiful trees come down. Yesterdays news reported a large pine went down that housed a bald eagles nest with eaglets. It had been there for so many years no one could remember it not being in that tree. http://www.wesh.com/news/22312718/detail.html
