First Monsoon of the season
One wonders if this is an AZ thing, but the first legit monsoon of the season was set to roll through Tucson this evening, and as I was arriving home after having a flat fixed, I noticed many people out on their balconies and porches to watch the magnificent glorious fury. I love monsoons myself, thought I really am not so fond of the thunder (it scares me). There is nothing like a hot, sticky morning, broken in the afternoon by the storm. Arizona, not known for humidity, but get a storm rolling through and it is as wet and sticky as a Georgia summer day. The lightening is the greatest show on earth, the thunder its soundtrack, and the smell of the rain making it one of my favorite things ever.
