A good rainfall has become so infrequent these last few years in AZ, even during hte monsoon. I love a good downpour, something I experienced alot of in Houston. It's cathartic, like a drawn out, snot gushing, wailing crying session! (Now that was a beautiful picture to paint!) Anyhow, so when rain does come, we go out and do our own rain dance which I think every child should experience.
Of course it usually ends in mud!
