It has been raining since last night and it is still raining. That is 18 hours of none stop rain.
We have gotten a lot of rain this season! This means we should have an major flower bloom during March and April.
The California desert is famous for these blooms, but they only happen in a big way once every decade or so.
People travel from all over the world to see these blooms. I meet lots of Germans, British, French and Japanese tourists who come for the flowers.
Every year we have some degree of bloom, but a big flowerings only happen when we have had good rains. This may be a major bloom year.
The desert is so amazing once you see its hidden life.
