What kind of Spring is this?

I finally had something to take pictures of . Last week the temps were in the high 80's to low 90's. Had to use the A/C. My maintenance guy came over to set up the swamp cooler so I could use that instead of the A/C he asked me if I wanted to close down the furnace and I thought not to. Well I sure am glad I didn't it never reached over 45 yesterday.

Friday the winds were blowing hard around 30 mpr with wind gust of 40mph. We had lots of rain yesterday. Of course in the desert you take all you can get. In picture below I am looking south (sorry about the awning) those mountains rise higher that what you can see with cloud cover.

About 30 minutes later the clouds dropped even lower
And this was taken 7:30 this morning.
This shot was north over my back wall.

BUT they say the weather will be much warmer this coming week and the sun will shine again by late afternoon.

Have a wonderful day and I hope everyone will have less wind so we can all enjoy what ever we have planned.
