Having never experienced a "monsoon" before it was quite exciting for us folks from the Pacific Northwest who are used to a nice soft drizzling type rain to watch the wind and rain come down so hard and so fast the street floods in minutes and you can hardly speak to each other for the noise! Very exciting and the best part... it's not cold! AND it's gone almost as fast as it comes. Fortunately for us, we are in an older development that was very "thoughtfully" planned so no flooding problems (lots of big holding ponds in the area) and with the desert landscaping the ground just sucks that water up right now. Within hours you would hardly know it had even rained. Amazing site and fun to watch.
Having breakfast one morning with son Roy and Natali we visited a new restaurant to us The Good Egg. Look at this flag made out of egg cartons. Wild and very clever! A little large perhaps but fit nicely on their wall. I always enjoy clever ideas. Besides the food was good. A little bit of a drive but worth it!
