This Isn't What We Came Here to See

Rain, sleet, snow, temps in the 30s and 40s.  And we're not in Colorado, Minnesota or the northwest.  We are in Arizona!

The rest of the country--with the possible exception of Florida--has bone-chilling cold with snow.  Here, we have had over 2 inches of rain.

The road in front of our house had running water.

This retention pond was really full.

A drainage ditch had running water.

Usually we can walk down the path that is underneath of center of this lake.

The Superstition Mountains had more snow than we have seen in all our winters in the Valley.

This is another walkway--full to the brim with happy ducks floating around.  They may be the only folks here who are happy with the weather.

If this area gets much fuller, the nearby houses will see flooding.

To the left rear of this photo, you can see the shuffle board court.  I hope the pucks float.


  1. Hoping that your Site is not being threatened by the rising waters.
    We've been lucky only getting Cold Wind and Rain. The warmer Temps are forecasted through next week.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the warm up.

    It's about time.

    1. It is now dry and warmer. Our site was never in danger, just our attitudes.

  2. Hello from Texas! Our grandson is in the Air Force and stationed in Arizona. Hope it warms up for you soon.

  3. It has, finally warmed up. It was 82 yesterday. Everyone is very happy.
