Yesterday Arizona had what some say was a record-breaking storm. More rain than we've seen in a single day in the past 17 years. Snow in places not used to snow. Winds up to 65 mph, and word of a tornado sighting in Cave Creek.
We took a rain day at work because my boss didn't want us all driving in through the traffic and weather and possibly getting stuck here if the parking lot flooded. I didn't know how bad the day would be, so I opted to keep the kids home with me and work while they played independently and napped. And I documented our day in pictures.

9:36 a.m. Rainy days don't get her down. She plays in the rain while I sip coffee and work on my laptop.
10:02 a.m. "Mama, my hands are cracking from the cold." Time for dry clothes!
10:40 a.m. Curling up on the couch with a good book while listening to the rain sure has a different meaning as a Mom.
