Rain in the desert

We slept later than usual. When we finally rolled out of bed, the rain had stopped and most of the standing water had already soaked in. Clearly the storm was breaking up. One of the other campers told us their rain gauge recorded over two inches, which is about half the normal annual total for this area.

The weather should be clear for a few days, but there is another system approaching. We just might cut short our stay here by a day or two to avoid traveling in rain. We’ll monitor the weather closely.
