Friday was a palo verde snow day. The palo verdes are decked in little yellow blooms this time of year, and when the wind blows -- it snows!
Leading to piles like this that must be swept or blown from sidewalks. Actually, I think Friday's wind took care of blowing the mess away.
Friday's wind led to the next large weather event -- rain! I heard a weatherman describe it as a torrential downpour on the Saturday evening news. Not exactly! It was a steady rain that lasted from the wee morning hours until late afternoon on Saturday.
Sunday, we awoke to whooooosh, whooooooosh, whooooooosh . . . It suddenly dawned on me (dawn would be the time) that those hot-aired bastards were hovering over our house again. I threw on shorts and a t-shirt and ran out with the camera. They hid behind the palo verdes in the park behind us, laughing that they'd once again hauled the crazy lady with the camera out of bed. Cowards!
Seriously, shouldn't there be a curfew on these annoying orbs? Kind of like the pool at the hotel. No ballooning before 7 a.m.!
