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.
