Rainy Day in Phoenix


It rained all day Saturday in Phoenix.  It's a rare event that most desert dwellers enjoy.  I went for a long drive around town to see what rainy sights I could see.  This one shows a golf course with some hardy players out there in the rain.  In the background you can see the downtown skyline barely visible through the rain.

I can't imagine playing golf in a steady rain such as yesterday. At least it was near 60 degrees. I guess that means that just like we have a dry heat, we have a warm rain.

It does seem unusual to see so much rain in Phoenix, still it will no doubt be welcomed by the grass and trees in your photo!

Lovely! It rained all day here too and most of last night. No snow.

Playin' in a light drizzle and fog has its allure.

Great pictures, and those beautiful cars. That Corvette really is the business. Rain for a day......you should be thankful you dont live in Wales...it's not the Green green grass of home for nothing.

I heard about your rain. Everyone I talked to was loving it.

I can remember one year while living in Phoenix and my daughter was still in elementary school I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. Her answer: A rainy day. They are certainly precious in the desert.

Great shot! Some golfers are nuts. I won't name any names, though. I do remember those wonderful rainy days. As I recall, back in 1951-52, average rainfall in Phoenix was 7 inches a year. Not enough to keep an old hen wet!

These are die-hard golfers!

Great shot Sharon! I would be inside somewhere warm and dry!

In the part of Florida where I live in the winter, no one plays golf on rainy days. Why would they, when most days are gorgeous?

Looks fantastic Sharon, I bet it smells good too. The smell when it rains after a long dry spell is wonderful don't you think!

We've had enough of this! :-) It's a cool shot though.
