It doesn't rain in southeastern CA either. I live in Blythe, only about 20 miles from AZ. It is hot, dry, and dusty here year round. And windy. I'm not too far east of the Palm Springs area, and it is constantly windy there. They have thousands of those windmills that generate electricity. It's like a perpetual sandstorm. You want warm? It's over 110 degrees here for several months out of the year. Downright miserable.
Wish it was warm enough here for rain. Currently, it's 26 degrees, up from a low several days ago of 10 degrees. We've had sleet, snow and freezing rain off and on for 3-4 days. Roads are covered in ice and most businesses (including doctor's offices and pharmacies) government offices, schools, and others are closed and have been since the first snowfall. Fortunately, there hasn't been enough ice formed on the tree branches to cause widespread power outages. But many homes have frozen pipes. Supposed to get gradually warmer starting tomorrow. Time to put another log on the fire.
