Actually we have had rain here at the house a couple of times, but the OFFICIAL rain meter is at the airport and it hasn't had any rain until Wednesday. An intersection we always go through on our way to WalMart, just a couple of miles from the house got 3/4 of an inch of rain Thursday. In fact the mall by there lost power for three hours. And here is our rain. Not a whole lot but more drops then I wanted to count. Actually it did rain more about 10 p.m. and steady for a while. You know you live in Vegas when you go out to count the rain drops.Looking to the south of us towards Henderson. Some lightening and loud thunder. Guess they were getting a real storm. About 4 in the afternoon.
About 7 p.m. I happened to look out back and see this pretty rainbow over the Wetlands east of us.
The sky looking north was a strange orange color with the setting sun and clouds.
One of the lantana plants in our back yard. It used to be covered with yellow flowers. The darn pidgins have been eating the flowers. They have never in all the years we've lived here done that before. Stupid birds.
They are working on the edges of this one too.
Yesterday afternoon got some aggravating news. a medical test of Bill's that was supposed to be done the 18th has been cancelled because doctor's office does not have approval from the insurance company yet... Got a hold of them "they who make the decisions" and was told they don't have to make a decision until the 22nd!!! So test has been rescheduled for the 25th. Sure hope all the paper work is done by then. Want to find out what is going on and if something needs to be done. If our doctor would call "they who make the decisions" they would make it sooner, but wouldn't you know doctor is on vacation.
