Just the other day Sue at Talking Dogs was wishing she could share some of their excessive rain with those of us praying for rain. Well, it seems like her wish came true!
Saturday morning we woke to a rare sound here - thunder! Rita was a little concerned, but not too bad.
However when the rain meant we had to cut our usual Saturday long-walk short, she wasn't thrilled.
We got over an inch (!) of rain on Saturday - which is a TON for us, especially in July. It almost NEVER rains here in July. We broke the single-day record of 0.83 inches, and also the record for an entire July's rainfall, which was 0.92 inches, both records previously set in July 1902. It was the wettest July day since data collection in the area began in 1850.
While we are very happy to have the rain, there was a bit of mischief - beyond Rita missing out on her long walk. We recently redid our front yard to put in water-wise plants.

Well, unfortunately the rain carved out a substantial chunk of our front yard and washed it away down the hill.
We are getting more rain today, Sunday, while I type this. It is so muggy, which isn't normal here.
Rita snuck into the guest bedroom (which she's supposed to stay out of) and I found her in a dark corner in there. Couldn't blame her!
How was your weather this weekend? Did it cause mischief for you and your pups?
