We live in the Southwest, El Paso, TX to be exact. A desert for all intents and purposes. We moved to the Upper Valley area because it's really close to the river and we love living in the valley. There's so many trees, running/walking paths and it's a small quirky community.
Last Sunday we started our monsoon season with a big bang. 5-6 hours of torrential rain which made us our own personal front and backyard lagoons. Woo-hoo, let's welcome those mosquitoes as well and throw them a big party! My poor hubby has got that pump going 24/7 and after 2 days, we're almost there!
Behold our front-yard lagoon:
The back-yard lagoon is not looking too shabby, either!
