Rain in the desert

Last Tuesday it rained steadily most of the day. The pour-offs were amazing. Places I’d seen completely dry were – nothing mini-about them—Niagaras. The river was dark brown, cocoa-colored and full of debris. Over the next few days it gradually turned from americano to latte and now back to viridian and raw sienna. Even more amazing to me was a puddle that went from clear to phthalo green with algae in a matter of hours, before drying up completely.
