May you live in interesting times

I'm no Chinese scholar but I've always heard my title to be a Chinese curse.  Well, we're in for it now.  Let's hope things don't get TOO interesting.  As I've said before, I didn't vote for the man but he is our new President.  For eight years I've heard and read about people disrespecting President Obama.  I've got to give this new guy a chance.

On a happier note, it's raining in the desert.  The weather folks are saying that the three storms that started yesterday should give us about a inch of rain.  That is about 25% of the annual quota so it's a big deal.  Fortunately it is spread out over several days so it shouldn't cause any flooding.  Yes, it does flood out here, just not this time.  And just to make it more interesting people don't really know how to drive in the wet. 

Well, actually, I don't think many of them can drive worth a darn anytime.  I had the enjoyment of driving home from Las Vegas the other night.  The number of people who tried to hide in my blind spot was amazing.  They seem to be the same people who think turn signals are the work of the devil.  There was even one genius in a new Audi TT Coupe that was driving without headlights - this is about 3 hours after dark.  Grrr!

The rain does make for some interesting photos.  Here are a few from the last couple weeks.

Here's hoping for a great 2017!
