We haven't been here long enough to really know, but we're noticing a weather pattern. Days typically start out with clear blue skies, then become very hot (41C/103F) by mid-afternoon, at which point the clouds start roiling, and before long great thunderheads form. Then, flashes of lightning slash the sky followed by deep booming rolls of thunder - the kind you can feel as well as hear. Sometimes rain, driven by a fierce wind, comes flying past in sheets. After this fury has spent itself, it seems that the whole act is packed up and moved on to the next location. Then a gentle rain falls, as if to assure all living things that goodness also comes from above.
When things had calmed down again today I found remnants of that gentle rain still resting on some of the plants.
