Finally it is starting to feel like Winter here in the desert. The temperatures are dropping, both in the day and night time. Today it rained most of the day. A bone chilling rain.

We are staying in a wonderful rental house (the Bunny House) while we are building our home. It is a beautiful walk between the properties. In the morning we did the walk in a light rain and caught a bit of rainbow.

When it rains out here, it is magical. First you get the smell. The air is crisp and clean and smells like burnt sugar. Then the visual. The palette of the landscape changes. The silver bushes become dark purple, the yellow ones turn golden. The greens of the joshua trees and the juniper bushes darken. The cholla glow white.
