Wednesday, August 25


Yesterday, it started raining while the sun was still shining. 

The phenomenon brought out our neighbors. We stood on the porch and enjoyed the cool breeze.

Then it really started pouring.

I tried to capture the rain as it landed, but it didn't turn out, as you can see. 

This picture did! 

I don't think I've seen any houses with gutters here in AZ.

 As a result, it puddled up on the ground right away. AZ has clay ground, so water doesn't absorb well.

There's the sunshine again!


  1. what fabulous photos. How interesting to see houses without gutters.
    Here in Australia gutters are a big deal, certainly up here in the subtropics.
    thanks for posting the pictures
    I love your digi header image.
    Im here from 31DBBB and SITS sharing the love...

  2. That's one of the best things about Arizona...it's ALWAYS sunny. Makes life easier for those who are "weather moody" like me :-D.

  3. Great pics! My BIL lives in NM and mentioned about the gutters as well (originally from PA). It's so neat to see different parts of the country from my couch!

  4. Yesterday it HAILED and the sun was still shining!!!


A penny for your thoughts? I love hearing from you!
