Where's Nate?

Today was all about water. I guess I'm used to the fact that it doesn't rain in Silicon Valley from May to October. Not today.

This morning, Dad and I fixed the sprinkler system at Inwood Court. We trimmed back the grass in the front and back yards and replaced a handful of sprinkler heads. My fingers are crossed.

Then in a surprising turn of weather, a flow of monsoon moisture came up from the south (see above). When the rain finally started to fall this evening, I ventured into the backyard to witness a very rare event firsthand.

With over 300 days of sunshine a year, San Jose is a fairly arid place. We put away the umbrellas in late April and keep them stored until the clocks change in November. Living in paradise is such a burden.
