When It Rains . . .

Last Friday evening a huge storm blew through the Rio Grande valley of central New Mexico.  It brought much-needed rain -- and not-needed high wind and hail -- to our drought-stricken area.

In some parts of Albuquerque there were many uprooted trees and downed power lines; in our neighborhood (having few trees), just a lot of water erosion, some of which was significant.  (Though not anything like what western North Carolina got about the same time.)

These irrigation pipes are supposed to be buried.

But in the aftermath, the flowing water also left beautiful patterns.  Here are some examples:


Some are even more interesting in black-and-white:

But all are, in their own way, beautiful . . .
