Newton's Moisture

Raindrops on Cholla
When Becca and I headed over to Tortugas Mountain for a morning hike I knew it wouldn't be a good idea to bring my camera along.  I was right.  We got misted/spritzed upon for the entire long trek.  The precipitation never came down hard, but it was persistent enough to get us wet.  Before we drove home I gave Dr. K a call and asked her to have a towel ready to dry the Beckster off.  Our flash flood warning expired this morning, but we've been told by local meteorologists (not personally--on TV) to be aware of the potential for heavy rain from former Hurricane/Tropical Storm Newton.  I believe our next-door state, Arizona, is going to get hammered later today.

It's nice that you have some much to photograph right in our own yard. Beautiful purple flowers on our sage.
