Its been raining for the past 2 days - and its a wonderful thing. Given the fact that we live in a desert (or semi-arid steppe if I'm remembering my physical geography correctly), I'm pretty much always happy with precipitation. The problem is though, that when we actually get a lot of rain, the water doesn't always know where to go.
I layed in bed last night, listening to the rain, and hoping that all my down spouts were facing the right way (away from the foundation). So when I woke up this morining, I went out to inspect. The down spouts were all facing the appropriate way, but I did find a lovely pond in an area that was previously just grass.
Here's the view from my lovely broken kitchen window.
And from my back patio:
Maybe rain isn't always such a good thing. I hope the water is staying put and out of my basement.
