Here’s a photo from two days ago, when Phoenix was experiencing one of its 28 rainy days allotted for the year. This was actually taken from inside my apartment, through the window. During a break in the rain, the sunshine was hitting the palm trees.
Fun trivia for the folks in the home state: Spokane gets an average of 106 days of precipitation and Seattle gets 147.
The stats are from the 2010 U.S. Census (warning – excel spreadsheet).
