We finally got some rain. A few comparison photos are presented below:

note that the trees have not recovered; I suspect that most of them are dead.

Well, another week and the trees aren't quite as dead as I thought.

Look at the TOP of the tree in the foreground between the bike and the stock tank.



And for those who wondered why we retired to Arizona in 2001, the photo below was taken the 13th of June in Bozeman, Montana.



Cheers y'all. :wavey1:

I remember this particular rain in AZ.

RW & I were watching the Weather Channel .. and both caught that it was raining over AZ. RW even said "move over, move over" .. to the announcer who had stepped in front of Arizona on the map while giving the national weather report. The rain covered the entire state!

We both commented at the same time "that's great for Purple & John".
