We knew we were going to get the edges of hurricane Norbert out in the Pacific Ocean, but nobody could forecast exactly how much rain we'd get. I could smell it yesterday morning. I also spotted a nearly-flat tire on my car, so I phoned a colleague and asked for a ride. GOOD THING! Our daughter called to warn me that traffic on Interstate 10 near the Washington exit was crawling along at 30 mph because of low visibility. There was a downpour out there. We nearly pulled off the freeway. However, once we got to Indio, the rain completely stopped. When we got to school, we heard thunder very nearby and, of course, morning recess was cancelled.
Anyway, here are some photos from the local news showing the flooding.
