So this storm has brought a lot of rain (for Palm Springs, anyway)

Rain has been hitting Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley consistently this morning and did pretty much all night as well – dropping quite a bit of water out of the sky. And, hey, it looks like there is plenty more on the way.  Palm Springs weather continues to be crazy.

Of course, with the rain, comes issues – with some roads being closed:

Seriously though be smart and safe out there as things are looking crazy:
