100 percent chance of rain

The big Tucson news earlier this week was a projected weather forecast for today of “100 percent chance of rain.”  Today the weather folks are saying “Showers have taken over the state of Arizona.” Since very early this morning it’s been raining hard, letting up, and then raining again.  Repeat, repeat.  No big deal in Oregon, Ohio or Utah.  But a big deal here. All the photos below were taken this morning at Tucson's Davis Monthan Air Force Base FamCamp, where we are staying in our motor home.

A fake "dry wash" gets wet.
Jim and Bev with very wet glasses.  It looked like we were the only ones in the FamCamp walking in the rain.  We did see a crazy guy doing donuts in his car,  however.
Taken from directly in front of our motor home. It drained pretty quickly between showers.
The force of the rain actually broke a branch off this cactus and created what looked like a picture frame.
A sun break between rain showers.
Another sun break, this time with the nearby airplanes stored on the base's "bone yard."
