I have noticed over time that some people have the perception that here in the desert we have only one temperature, Hot! Infact most people are surprised to find that in winter we can experience temperatures below freezing over night and in summer what was hot and dry can quickly become high rivers and closed roads. But a desert storm is something all should experience, how quickly the sky can turn black, the thunder can be heard from far away and the lightening can appear to be all around. But best of all is how fast and heavy the rain can fall.
As the storm builds up today I thought I would share some photos taken during the 1988 floods which caused significant damage to the newly refurbished property at the time.
