The back yard, that is
December 4, 2014 | Mother Nature has decided to wash us clean.
After years of almost no rain, Southern California has enjoyed three days of rain. Well, not everybody has enjoyed the rain. For instance, those who find almost every north-south road that crosses the wash closed are not particularly happy.
For example, to get to Palm Springs for our Wednesday night out — a combination this time of regularly scheduled adult beverages and observance of Réal's birthday — Ken and I had to go by way of Whitewater, nearly doubling the distance and time. Said detour involves a small, almost-never-used road that connects the I-10 with CA-111, definitely a "road less traveled by," and remarkable mainly for the fact that it crosses a heavily travelled train track, delaying transit while a freight train passes.
Returning to our story, the rain last night filled the dry river beds in my backyard with water!
