It's a mud puppy!

She wouldn't let me get any good action shots - before grabbing my camera from Rob through a gap in the sliding glass door, she had been running, leaping & sliding in the huge puddle. Once I had camera in hand, it was all still-lifes.

Beautiful torrential rain. Loving it completely.

We had fog this morning! The weather cams on top of the Stratosphere tower were just showing a field of fluffy gray clouds where the Strip normally is, with a few glowing spots from high neon signs underneath. Absolutely gorgeous!

Of course, no living human in Las Vegas knows how to drive in fog, but there were no accidents this morning, either :)

One of my favorite things about living in the high desert is the weather, moody and fickle as it is.

Right now, our backyard is being rained on by a cloudless sky.

I know the leading edge of the raincloud is somewhere behind the porch roof, but standing on the edge of my porch looking straight up into the downpour, it's clear and blue.

As I've written this, the cloud has passed over our house and it's stopped raining.

Thank you, Great Mystery, for that brief visit.

Big thunder and raindrops the size of peas.

Thank you, Great Mystery!

Thank you, Great Mystery, for the brief squall of rain and the fine night.

So, now I've built up this entire sleazy relationship with Bowling Shirt Retro Guy. Does anyone know of any places in Vegas that cater to the retro tiki lounge scene kinda guys?

Edited due to weirdness... Every time I click on Post or Update Journal, I end up w/a photo of some woman. Weird.

I just needed to say thanks to the Great Mystery for sending rain. I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention & didn't know it was raining today. I've been, uh, busy...

Thank you, Great Mystery. The rain has been wonderful.

Got a perm on Sunday. It's not quite what I wanted. I don't know why I keep trying perms - they never work. My hair is just not perm-friendly. At least it didn't fry my hair - even w/out conditioner tonight, it's really soft.

Everyone at work is on some kind of diet right now. I, of course, am not. I think I've finally given up. I will just be fat. I mean, it still ends the same way - healthy, unhealthy, fit, unfit, we all die in the end. Being fit does not give you immunity from death. There are 27-year old athletes who die in the middle of basketball games & shit. I don't want my body to look like it just came out of the showroom when I die. I want to be a case study. I want the mortician or coroner or whoever finds me to recoil in horror & exclaim, "Oh dear God! What the Hell happened to her?! We weren't trained for this kind of thing!"

Thank you again, Great Mystery, for sharing the rain with us.

Chelsie just came in from outside - she's soaked. Got up on the couch & tried to burrow her way under Rob's knees. Hee hee.

More Rain

Thank you, Great Mystery, for another day of rain. The desert flowers will be amazing and tonight we all sleep in beauty.

I haven't seen rain like this since Rob & I drove to New Orleans. Four days straight of rain - in Vegas. It's cold, though - 39ยบ - but it's not windy, which is nice. The forecast has rain slated for tomorrow, too. Mt. Charleston is anticipating 15" or more of snow before the storms leave us. Even though I hate snow, I know snow on the mountains means spring run-off.

Most people are probably not pleased with the rain by now. The m.i.l. is definitely not happy - her garage is leaking. Heh. Our back yard is one solid mud puddle with islands of dog poop here & there. Charming picture, innit?

Thank you, Great Mystery. Three days of rain in a row is a rare joy.

Ahh, Rain

Thank you, Great Mystery, for sending rain to us today.

I have also coined a new term - puppy-whipped. Chelsie has Rob completely puppy-whipped.
