It rained and blew in Ajo all night. Finally moderated to showers this morning. We've been coming down here for fifteen years; have never seen such weather! I spoke too soon, the heavy rain just started again.

Lots of rain out here in Wittmann. 3-4", washes running heavy,the tracks were shut down and we went home early. Went out to Wickenburg and the normally dry Hassaampa river was flowing a good clip. And of course the Airstream is leaking around the A/C. Adios, John

We lost a very large mesquite tree last night in the storm. This tree has been a worry of ours over the years and last night was just too much wind and water to keep it up. The good news is that it did not land in my neighbors pool, but instead landed in my back yard and caused no damage where it fell.

Deadhorse firewood? That's just what happened to me in the last storm to blow through. Guess mother nature likes us 4CU'ers.

Nice! Mesquite firewood, the best there is. Love the smell.

Glad everything turned out okay, Richard.

My front yard looks like a lake but everything's okay here. And my Sovereign got a good bath. She's clean and shiny.

Most of the tree is gone and the corner of the backyard looks very naked. Mesquite is a very hard wood to cut and I had to replace the chain on the saw twice. My chainsaw has a 16" blade and was not long enough for some of the trunk.
