An Impressive Storm

by Mark Hahn


The storm was impressive in magnitude. It blotted out the big sky. Icy cold wet Pacific Northwestern winds blew thick clouds across the desert playa south of Wilcox. This is where we found this small house. Flooding occurred as if it was nothing. It took no notice of us. The land had been shaped by it. Only a periodic occurrence, people forget how devastating it can be. They say we needed the water. This is the type of weather that drives people indoors.
