It's Raining!

So this actually took place a week and a half ago but I haven't been able to post it until now. Arizona gets great rain storms and as we were coming out of church around 3:30 one afternoon it just started pouring down on us. Mind you, it is still nearly 100 degrees outside and my car doesn't have air conditioning so our choice was between getting soaked through and being sweltering hot in the car. We chose somewhere in the middle. By the time we drop our nephews off at their home and drive the less than 3 miles between the church and our house the streets are flooded, we are soaked, and the golf course across the street looks like this... Yes, that is really a stream of water flowing down the hill onto the golf course. You can tell it is not a small stream. There was a lake at the bottom and there were trees flowing down the hill.
So what do we Arizonians do? Carpe diem. That is a free waterslide.

Again, remember, it is the middle of July in Phoenix, it is about 100 degrees with humidity that is off the charts for us people that are used to the dry heat. So what better way to cool down.
Someone even brought a wakeboard and rode it down the hill. It looked like so much fun.

I tried to convince Josh to go, but that whole Sabbath day holy stuff. Oh yeah, and there were a couple of girls that "forgot" their swimsuits so I didn't try to convince him too much. What fun though.

I love it maybe it will rain like that when I come down so that we can go down the slide.
