Monsoon season continues here in the desert, with marvelous thunderstorms and nightly rainfall. It was still sprinkling this morning when Herself made a trip to the grocery store less than an hour after sunrise. The parking lot was spotted with many bedraggled grasshoppers; some were squished, some were clearly waterlogged, and some were jumping as if to try to dry themselves off. Hop, hop. Rest. Hop, hop. Rest.
It really is fascinating, the effect of rain on all the creatures of the desert.
