The most exciting news this week is that we had over a full inch of rain yesterday!! Henness and Cottonwood were both flooded up over the curbs.

I loved this picture in the paper of a man shielding his little girl from the rain as they left the grocery store. Cute!!
I snapped a few photos along Florence Blvd. while out on errands this morning.
