Cloudy Day in Vegas

I walked outside this morning and found something unusual. The sky, rather than being its normal blue, was filled with grey clouds! It doesn't rain very often here in Vegas. On the way to compiling our 4 inches of annual precipitation, we'll go months without a single cloud. The last raindrop I remember seeing here fell sometime in February. Who knows, maybe today will be the day to see another.

Wow, no rain since February. It's so great when it washes everything clean, and everything is a little more green and fresh smelling. Besides, you can put away your sunglasses for the day.

Wowsa, that's a long time between rains. We Midwesterners would gladly give you some of our rain, we've had far more than our fair share this year.

Gorgeous picture by the way.
