I have to tell you, El Nino winters are just the worst. Wet and cold. It's enough to make a person ask for a snowbird rebate. The storm that hit San Diego yesterday is in Tucson today, minus the tornado. Downpour does not adequately describe parts of it. Anyway, we're in the low end of the park near the drains which are proving to be inadequate.
This is one street over from us. Notice the picnic table. It's on top of a concrete slab that is 4 inches tall; and I think about 4 inches of the table legs are also under water.
This is the end of our street. The drain is completely overwhelmed. They're running sump pumps, and one wonders where they are sending that water.
Here is more of our street with a hummingbird.
There is snow. I took this through the RV windshield, which is covered in water, so it's a terrible picture, but look at the mountains beyond the palm tree. Snow!
Every time it rains in Tucson, this happens. Not all streets have storm drains. When I lived here in the late 70s, early 80s, it was way worse, but some streets are still dished to carry water. Every time it rains, people drive into the deep water and get stuck. According to the news, there are two people and a dog in that car, awaiting rescue. As I mentioned last February, Tucson has a stupid motorist law, and you get fined it you drive stupid and require rescue.
So that's it - weather is all I have to report today.
