Monsoon Season

As hurrican Gustav approaches New Orleans after devistating Cuba, I enjoy light to medium rain showers every day here in Flagstaff. The locals call August the "Monsoon season," and it is easy to see why. Today it rained all day except for the hour and 20 minutes I was out biking. Absolutely wonderful for me because I love rain. The kids from Oregon are a little less pleased.

Yesterday it rained quite a bit. During a particularly heavy bout I grabbed my camera, hat, and a plastic cover and rushed out the door. Just outside my dorm I found a pretty little flower weathering the storm right next to a quickly forming pond.

I like shooting in the rain :-)

More later :-)
