My adventures in and near Deep Canyon, located near Palm Desert, CA and the pinyon mountains near it.
Graceful dead tree up above Deep Canyon.

We've had clouds and afternoon thunderstorms every afternoon last week, except yesterday. The day before we broke the record for rain, getting over 1/2 inch in one day! And, that was a 110 year old record! For a region which only gets 4 inches of rain (or less) a year, that was a LOT of rain. Cathedral City had MAJOR flooding from the cove down through the local businesses. I'll post a link later (for Timeless), so you can see the videos and read about it. And, we have thunderstorms forecast for today and tomorrow. I'm going to head up the mountain road (see previous post) this morning to check on my horses and work with a couple of them....HOPEFULLY before the rain starts up again! Here are a few picture I took this past week of our skies...enjoy!
Here's a couple of videos about our storm this week:
