We just took it easy the next day. We didn’t have any plans to go anywhere else or to do anything specific. After the hectic days at Overland Expo, it was nice to have some down time.
Kent was feeling restless, so he went out for a bike ride. The rest of us just hung out for a while.
There were dark clouds moving up from the south.
Late in the afternoon, the dark clouds got quite a bit closer. They were carrying rain. Jon was pretty sure that it was really going to blow, so we went inside. Very soon after we finished, the wind came blowing through. It was incrediblely strong. Jon realized that we had left the garage door open on the opposite side from where the wind was blowing. I offered to run out and close it. When I opened the door, the wind caught it. I tried to shut the door, but the wind was much too strong. Fortunately, Jon was able to close it. The rain went through as quickly as it had arrived.
All the rain has certainly made the desert bloom. It is much greener than I’ve ever seen it before.
