Last week in Tucson and Phoenix, there was heavy winter rains and flooding from a tropical hurricane.
The sky warns of the coming storm. . . . . . . . .
All through the Southwest, are dry creek or river beds where children play but they are warned, as well. These arroyos or dry creek beds can flood with water in the flash of the eye as water rushes down from higher ground. The sand does not absorb the large quantities of water quickly, thus it floods roads and homes as it has to go somewhere.
Mesa was where I taught while living in Gilbert, both suburbs in the Valley of the Sun.
Water , water everywhere soaking the desert’s dry bones!
