Right where I’m looking.
This is my wash here.
Normally it looks like this with no water in it.
You see where the grass is laying down?
Right there is a little trail that connects to the rest of my trails.
But the grass there is usually standing up tall.
That grass doesn’t normally lay down on the job.
And you know what that means?
It means that water came flowing down my wash and got so deep that it buried all that grass.
My wash turned into a regular swimming hole.
And I missed it.
I missed my chance to go swimming in my own wash.
By the time I got out here there was no water at all.
What, person? What are you trying to tell me?
What? When that water was here it was pouring down rain and thundering?
But that’s terrible!
How dare that rain and thunder be here at the same time as my swimming hole.
I bet that’s what chased my swimming hole away.
I mean, isn’t that kind of like raining on my parade?
