I’ve always enjoyed songs about rain. I figured with the last couple of weeks been an onslaught here much more so than any June in recent memory – this is supposed to be considered “High Desert”. I have posted a few of my older favorites in this category, but it has been a few years back. Today (turns out it might be a sunny one after all) I thought I might post a few from more recent memory. The pic I took a couple evenings ago when it was raining – yet again. I don’t want people to think I haven’t been enjoying the rain, because there’s not much better than summer rain, especially in the desert, but it has been a bit cooler than usual for this time of year. I do enjoy the weather and the cool weather, the wind and the rain. I’m not so much complaining as basking in the wonderful precipitation.
