The rain started around midnight last night and has been showering off and on all day. At one point there was a stream flowing beside our trailer. The clouds have been hanging heavy over the mountains, obscuring them in their mist. The peaks around Sierra Vista have a thin blanket of snow, reminding us of what we left behind. The scent of fresh rain was quite pleasant and almost forgotten.
I had a conversation with a fella that has lived here for the last five years and he stated that this is the first time he’s seen rain like this in December. He said this was more July to September weather.
Here I am getting all poetic, but it’s been a poetic type of day. I’ve been meaning to post for several days now, life has a way of being busy though. I will endeavour to bring you all up to date shortly as a bit has happened in the last week.
Tomorrow we will be getting some company as Laurel’s mom will be joining us here in Arizona. The kids are all super excited to have grandma for Christmas.
Anyhow, off to do laundry…
