Arizona's Monsoons

The monsoon season in Arizona is such a fickle beast. We can experience walls of dust, micro burst that knock down even the largest of trees, thunder and lightning. Your friends in one city are experiencing high winds and rain while at the same time you have lots of sunshine. The forecasters predict rain, and there is none. Or just the opposite, lots of rain causing flooding.

I love it when it rains. The weather cools down and all my plants are being watered so I don't have to do it. The bad thing is that after the rain comes high humidity. We are not used to that. We are used to the dry heat and it feeling like an oven. That I can handle.

The monsoons usually start at the end of July to September. Some years, it may start earlier and end later. Whenever it is here, I just want it to rain!!
