Beginning early July ... and pretty much continuing throughout the month ... we got Rain! LOTS OF RAIN. It was a welcome event, putting out the wildfires by mid-July.
Early in the month, we had occasional short downpours. This one (looking westward) eventually made its way to our home.
At times, we received too much rain. The first of three SIGNIFICANT STORMS in July caused some damage to our driveway and landscape.
This view is toward the south, with perhaps a half-mile visibility due to the heavy rain.
The third significant storm, which hit at night, caused the normally-dry wash below our home (which our driveway traverses) to overflow its bank, forming a rapidly-flowing river along Comanche Drive and flowing across our lower fields near the Verde. The water not only caused a big mess, but added lots to our list of things to address.
