What’s that Noise??

This is a true story.

Honour and I are sitting in the living room with laptops and TV on and I ask her…

“Do you hear water running?”



“Oh, ya I do.”

Dave comes in from the kitchen and I ask…

“Did you leave water running?”


“I hear water running.”

“I don’t.”

“Turn the TV down.”

“Oh, now I do.”

“In the bathroom?”


Dave opens the front door.

“It’s raining!!!!”


True story. We’ve been here for almost 4 months and it has not rained.  Aside from the last 2 days I’ve only seen 3 clouds. We forgot what it sounded like and how very cool rain is. I just love a rainy day.

I would think that the rain would just be sucked up into the dry desert sand but apparently it’s very hard ground right below the surface. Maybe it’s like a dry sponge. Here are some pictures of the day after from my car window. Standing water in the desert, didn’t see that coming!

    It’s been raining here too. Is there such a thing as sympathetic weather? 🙂 Enjoy the precious drops!
