Rain leaves mark on thirsty desertA truck splashes through a puddle left this weekend near the corner of Richmond Street and Upjohn Avenue. After last week’s brief (if persistent) spot of rain, temperatures are on their way up in the IWV, according to Dale Bailey from the China Lake Weather Office. He said that last week’s storm brought just under a quarter of an inch of rain, “which is quite a bit for us.” Bailey said sunny weather is predicted through the weekend.
