|Calgary, Alberta suburbs in winter.|
There was a rainstorm in Palm Springs while I was there. Some of the main roads got washed out as a result, and when I took off I finally got a view of the what the runoff looked like. You can see how the water ran right off the mountains and turned into a muddy sludge that ran right into the valley. I didn't understand at first why the rain was such a big deal, as it didn't seem that dramatic at the time, however the desert just isn't meant to get that much rain at once.
