What can I say about our weather except--WOW!!!!!
All this wet weather we are having reminds me of the very first year I moved here in 1997. The fall of '97/Winter of '98 was also an El Nino year and we had TONS of rain. It also produced the most spectacular wildflower season I've experienced to date in Arizona. I took tons of film that year.
When I got up this morning it was fairly warm--close to 60 degrees and I didn't need a jacket. I scoffed because the weather channel said the high for the day was going to be 54--which we'd already passed.
But the temperatures did indeed dive and we had plenty of rain. In fact, tonight, as the Pastor preached from Revelations, the rain was coming down fast and furious so that he had to practically shout to be heard over the sound of the rain on the roof.
To date, we've had 4" of rain this year. To put that in perspective, we usually get no more than 7" of rain annually --- and that's on a good year. And most of that 4" came in the last two and a half months.
On the writing front, I've been participating in March's writing class on characterization through ACFW, and it is really challenging my brain. I've had a great time with it this weekend. If you are an ACFW member, I encourage you to check out the course archives.
I'm just hoping that the creative juices I'm working up for the class will spill over into getting me charged up to get back into my novel. Things have been so hectic, there hasn't been much time to work on it.
Have a blessed week and may your writing goals be met!
