The recent rains in Las Vegas make me reminisce about past summer rainy days.
Living in the desert I appreciate rainy days more than others. Raindrops pour down a new perspective on the city. Nighttime clouds reflect Las Vegas and you can trace the city from the green illumination on clouds over MGM Grande over to the bright light shining from the Luxor looking as though heaven were shining the light down rather than the reverse. From the Spilsbury home, just miles from the Strip, the transformation engulfs us in a peaceful warmth indoors. Outside the kids explore the grounds and experience a new aspect to their backyard oasis. We know this feeling will only last a day before the bright Nevada sun brings back the dry Sierra warmth.
