Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, January 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Thunderstorms and flooding
Our local mountains got rain yesterday. I could see it coming down near Pinyon, as I picked up hubby from work. I had driven up the mountain road for a little bit, just to see if it was raining...yup. BIG TIME! There is a flood warning for our entire valley and mountains today and especially in the burn areas of Anza-Borrego. That's where the fire was (it was up over 14,000 acres). I believe it was contained FINALLY yesterday. So, while the rain is welcome, heavy downpours are not, especially in those burned out areas. I found a blog from Anza-Borrego yesterday and I'll provide the link at the end of this post, if you wish to check it out. In the meantime, it is extremely cloudy and HUMID here this morning! It's REALLY DARK and cloudy outside, so we may get rain even here in the desert. Here are some pics of the thunderheads yesterday afternoon.
