Spring Saturday windy wet storm in Tucson April 26, 2014

Since we've had Payton as a house guest the last few days, the distraction has caused me to briefly fall behind on posting photos on this blog.  Don't worry, I'll kick my ass later.

We had a spring wind and rain storm roll through on Saturday (it's now Monday, so see? I'm slow and blaming Payton even though he really has nothing to do with it).  There were some pretty gusty winds and even a few little rain showers.

I was going to write today about how crazy the storm was... mostly to make fun of it.  We don't get crazy weather in Tucson much.  A wind storm with a few sprinkles turns into an event.  Then, there has been a major tornado outbreak in the Midwest and southern part of the United States the last few days with tons of destruction and multiple deaths.  As I write this, the Birmingham, Alabama area is under a tornado warning.  So, it doesn't seem quite so funny anymore writing about a branch falling down in Tucson.

But, since I'm usually the butthead in the room, I'm doing it anyway.  A moment of best wishes to those living in areas affected by violent weather.  May you stay safe.

It was so strong it landed on it's side.

Enough rain to cause speckles on the sidewalk next to my apartment

Rain rain go away come again some other day.

A few leaves on the ground and wet sidewalks.
