After 143 days without measurable rainfall â€“ 143 days, people! â€“ it rained all day Saturday in Phoenix and even snowed â€“ SNOWED! â€“ in the far north reaches of the Valley. The rain is supposed to continue today.
I mean, how pathetic is it that it’s so rare we see rain that I’m inspired to create a rain-themed post? You see, we have to live this up, for 100-degree temperatures are fast approaching. Seriously, this is front-page news in Phoenix, top story on the local news. Big, big stuff. While CNN reporters face hurricanes, our intrepid reporters brave almost 2 inches of rain!
Also, I’m watching after Gorilla vs. Bear this week while Chris is at SXSW. So visit me there, too (as if you don’t go there already).
