The Monsoons Come!!


Had our first shot across the bow with a small rain storm, using the term rain loosely. It was more the storm gods putting us on notice that Monsoon season is upon us here in AZ. Used to be we had to have three concurrent days with a dew point temperature of 55 degrees or greater before it was the official Monsoon season, but unfortunatly that was too much for the yokels, hillbillies, and banditos living out here. To make it easier for those out here with little or no forehead, the weather assholes changed it to 15 June, though they can start much earlier or later. They wanted to ease the doubt of the general public on the matter, even though Billy-Bob is going to drive around the barricades and get stuck in the wash whether you warn him or not. Hey, got to make it home in time for Ultimate Fighter and ol' Billy-Bob ain't gonna let a little water get in his way.

In any event, it will be nice to get a little rain and watch helicopters trying to pull the morons out of the flooded washes they just drove into.

Beautiful photo of the clouds and tree.
I had no idea that you had monsoons in Arizona, I thought it would be dry and arid for most of the year with the occasional rain storm... gosh they would be quite violent blowing in from the desert.
Well take care dear Phossy, stay away from flooded washes and enjoy the rain.
