Rainy Day in the Desert
Rain is a big deal throughout Arizona, since the average annual rainfall is only around 3 inches. A light rain started around 8:00 a.m. and lasted about an hour or so. Pockets of sporadic light rain continued throughout the day. We probably didn’t receive more than .250 inches of rain, but it looks like a lot more, as pools of water formed within depressions in the dry, parched, desert landscape.
We took advantage of the inclement weather and spent the day indoors at the Yuma Main Library located at 21st Drive and 32nd Street. This is a wonderful, large, two-story library. They have a large selection of computers for both adults and children to use. There are work tables, with electrical outlets, available for visitors with their own laptops or tablets to use. There is free WiFi available throughout the library.
The library has several conference rooms. Seminars are presented each month on various topics pertinent to the Yuma area.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
