I climbed Amy's outdoor fireplace to get a better look at a nearby storm. She thought to take a picture and it turned out well with the clouds backlit by lightning.
A sunny morning the following day so I got out for a short ride and encountered this guy, being pulled on a skate board by his two dogs. And then.....
....the rain arrived and in a big way. Rain gauges around the area have recorded as much as 7"+ in the last few days. Even the notoriously low Tucson airport gauge is reporting over 2" within the last 72 hours. Mean time, far south and east of here.....
....Amy has fled to St. Thomas. This is her view from where she is staying. I was invited but following my due diligence, it didn't appear that the island had enough activities that I would enjoy. Snorkeling is fun but not sailing, beach visits, fishing and one thing that was reinforced by the recent trip to the northwest, after 2 days of inactivity of the kind I enjoy, I start crawling walls. I don't know why that is just that it really, really is a factor. So....
....I'm caring for Jack the Dog. The first two days have been atypical of course with all the rain so our walks have lacked some distance but he is eating well and seems content as we both look forward to the reunion.
Sunday, another day of rain but that's ok. Getting in a good ride on Monday and then a hike on Tuesday.
