Todays a new day

Hello world.....
I have lots to be doing instead of writing on my blog but I am sort of a Don Quixote character at heart. I have made a promise to myself to use this forum as a journal and even if the windmill blades smack the crap out of me I will keep on keeping on. Me and Sancho.
That being said, I am looking outside and seeing another monsoon day approaching. For those of you who live in regular weather land, I bet you think because I live in the desert southwest that I am high and dry. Well you would be wrong. Every summer to a lesser or greater degree depending on the La Nina or El Nino's we get rain in June/July and again in Sept. Well Mother Nature is letting us have a preview of the summer to come and we have had rain everyday for the last week. I love it. My backyard turtles love it. My idiot dog Willow loves it. My husband who has to be out in it......not so much.
I know that in other locals when it rains it rains. I mean inches in hours. Here, an inch in a day is fabulous. I love the cumulus clouds that build thunderheads and then deliver. If I lived where it rained alot I am sure that I would be oblivious to the wonder of a rainy day. The power of the lightening and thunder, the smell of ozone, the sound of the rain on the sidewalk, I don't know it just sends me......
Pitapat, Linda
