WATER! We had a spectacular monsoon storm last night. Thunder, lightning, and torrential rain at my house. Punctuated by a span of 45 minutes of eerily silent dark without electricity. No sound of the air conditioner, computer fans or refrigerator. Wondering what I would do with the dogs in the morning if it didn't come back on. On the walk this morning, with eyes feasting on the rich colors of sparkly clean everything and surrounded by moist dirt smell, I watched cars swerve just to go through the puddles. The rain brings out the kid in all of us desert dwellers.
