Keeeerrrrrrrr Flushhhhhhhh – The Tucson Monsoon fun

Standard

A wonderful down pour.
We should have had enough now to start filling the water table back up. We were ahead by 3/8 of an inch yesterday locally. We here in Tucson ‘DO’ understand what it means to us. The great flushing and filling again. Kerrrrrr flushhhhhhh.
Before the monsoon, I had cleaned every down spout around the house.
Unfortunately, the winds that come with this rain blew leaves and debris into the troughs which then plugged them up again.
I was prepared, put on my rainproof jacket and bare legged, proceeded to undo screws at the elbows to release the clogs in the warm rain…. grinning all the way.
I’ve been doing this for over 25 years. I clean ’em, they get plugged and I let the rain be the flusher. LOL
Nothing inside the house….. all outside stuff.
I’ve tried all of the screens and covers but they just get plugged up too so…… it’s me….. maintenance man…. out there, fighting mother nature.
Why do I get the feeling that she’s doing this on purpose and loves to see me grin??????
Ha! Thanks!!!! That was fun, got me off of my butt, and I won again …………… for now. Life is a great adventure.
