It was an extremely gusty and windy day here in the desert and it rained on and off all day. It's 2:00 a.m. and it is still raining. (I had to get up and put the dogs out...) We really need the rain, so I'm not complaining. Besides, I scattered my wild sunflower, coneflower, zinnia, and cosmos seeds earlier this week, as soon as I heard a storm was heading our way! They will all sprout in this lovely rain!
I took my backup camera with me to school yesterday (my Nikon D40) and took a detour on the way home. There's a road off the Washington Street exit, off Interstate 10, that parallels one edge of the Coachella Valley Preserve. There are some huge sand dunes along it and I like to drive there and take photos of the patterns in the sand. Well, yesterday, I spotted huge clouds of dust and sand, so I stopped to take photos along the road. I'll be posting more pics in the next few days, but here are a couple of them.
