Man oh man, did we have a gully-washer of a storm yesterday!! We have never witnessed such flooding in all my years in the Valley! Our street was a raging river! Ok, so maybe not the raging part... but a river none the less. Here in Tempe, they say we got 2.4 inches, but our rain gauge says we got lots more. All I know is that I was thrilled to be barefoot in rain up to my knees, with my camera under my red umbrella, snapping over 75 pics! I kept running back 'n forth from front yard to back yard screaming with joy, while Randy was anxiously watching the rain rising fast and furious.
After the storm died down, we went over to our park, three doors down to hear dozens of frogs croaking like crazy! Here in the Valley, most every housing development has a sunken park that becomes a "lake" when it rains. All the neighbors gather after the storms with their kids and dogs and frolic in the "lake"! So, we joined in on the fun too, grabbing one of the frogs to show the neighborhood kids before it jumped back in the water. How fun to feel like a kid again!
