Here in AZ we are in the midst of our "monsoon" season. It's been teasing us for weeks but today, the sky finally opened up and let go. It got me to thinking about water storage. A rain barrel would have been nice but we don't even have gutters. It doesn't rain much here but when it does, it's fast and hard and I'm sure a barrel would have been filled today. And rain barrel water would certainly ease the numbers on the water bill. Six years ago today, my husband and I married. Maybe for my anniversary he'll buy me a rain barrel!
Anyway, my poor deprived desert children happened to be in the yard when the storm started and I just didn't have the heart to make them come inside. Once they were drenched and they complained of mud and clothing chafing, the clothes came off and my little wild ones finished their adventure in the nude. Here are some pictures of our absolutely lovely Saturday afternoon!
