A torrential downpour

We live by a lovely lake in Silverleaf in North Scottsdale. This is what it looked like yesterday when I was walking the dogs. You can see Camelback and Piestewa Peak in the distance.

I was all ready to swim today but the rains came hard and heavy this afternoon. It poured and poured for a good hour leaving all the streets flooded around my office and my house. I love the monsoon in Arizona. The skies put on a sound and light show and follow it up with heavy downpours; sometimes the downpour is accompanied by a rainbow (although today there was none). It is a tough act to follow.

I got home a bit early and took a nap instead. An easy rest day does a body good!
