Yesterday I was really curious about how it looked outside with all the rain. Georgie had told me the mountains were covered in snow. So I asked on FB for descriptions of what people saw. I only got 3 comments, but I thought they were pretty good. I think this is something I’m going to ask for on FB more often.
Below are the comments I got, exactly how they were left:
THe sky is a blue crystal if you look straight up, but thick cotton candy clouds are whizzing through quickly. Most of the darker forbading clouds are hurrying by to the north, obstructing the view of the Catalinas, but also making them seem higher and more mysterious.
This morning it was so dark but the clouds were so low it was like they were whipped cream plopped on top of the mountains….
We drove to phoenix today, and the dry desert that usually surrounds the freeway was filled with water. It was like a pure silver desert with the cactus and shrubbery poking up through the water, creating beautiful reflections. Several mobile home parks where filled with water up to the stairways. As we drove along I could only imagine what last night was like for them. For us it was a beautiful drive.
My friends have good imaginations, huh? I really liked these. I wish I had gotten more comments. Today B said there is snow halfway down the mountains. He also drove to a nearby town to get a closer look. I can only imagine how beautiful it all looks. There is nothing like the desert after a good cleansing rain. All the browns and greens are so vivid against the clear blue sky. There is also nothing like an Arizona sunset. Maybe I’ll start asking for sunset descriptions. Especially this summer. The sunsets are like our reward after a blazing hot day, especially after a quick visit from a booming and fierce monsoon.
