We’ve also had very little rain in this region. But we did have a full day of big rain. Maybe they bloomed after that.

Was it a type of rain lily? In their native habitat, they bloom after a period of drought, followed by rain. Yours are a bit unusual. I couldn't find a lily with foliage quite like that, almost in separate tufts. A photo of the flower would help identify it.
