This Is the Desert?

I love photos of reflections in water. Today, I was able to take some here in our "Active 55+ Resort."

Some of the RVs and park models almost had waterfront views.

Even the rose garden I blogged about yesterday was surrounded by water.

Mesa has received more than 1.5 inches of rain--a record for the amount of rain in one day. So every low spot is filled with water. Since it rains so seldom, there are no storm sewers here. Therefore, holding ponds are incorporated into the landscape wherever possible. We love looking at them when they fill with rain runoff.

Yesterday we could have walked in any of these areas and had dry feet. Today is a different story. The storm has caused delays for the state high school football playoffs and a national college soccer tournament.
