Hmmm. Odd bit of news. Almost no rain reached the ground though.

Thx for the story, Johnny. Yes indeed, it does get extremely hot in many areas of the Great American Southwest Desert region, and sometimes the scant rain that reaches the ground during the summer "monsoon" season is, well, kinda hot.

Chief Seattle, 1854
Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

Cree Prophecy:
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.

Being from Palm Springs originally, I sure don't miss that heat.
