An epic storm here in Arizona …. the rain they’ve received in the last 24 hours (between 5-7 inches) amounts to more than 1/2 of what Arizona receives in a year. One can only imagine the repercussions …. flash flooding, power outages, sand storms, tornado watches. All this whilst we wiled the day and night away in our Airstream. slaDE~ could even smell the desert within the trailer. Sand managed to creep in through every sliver and crack in the skeleton of our trailer. Part of living in the desert, I suppose. Yet it was only noticing the pile of sand on the inside of the door that we looked for a solution to keeping out the wind which rocked the Airstream and blasted us from the southwest with 55 mph wind gusts. Taping the window slits and the door crease whilst hanging a towel as a backup helped to keep the swirling dust at bay. So grateful to be stationary in this whirlwind of a storm. Seems like we’ve been chasing violent atmospheric disturbances across the southern US. I look forward to calmer and brighter days. Let’s hope that California brings the gifts of good weather this winter!
