It's raining here. Not stormy but just a nice rain. A tad heavy but no big winds. Just the way I like it. I haven't had the AC on for a couple of days and today is downright chilly! My daughter spending so much time at her boyfriend's house is a big help! Since she's a day sleeper I can't make her suffer when it's hot so my electric bill went through the roof. From sixty something to $200!! Went back down this month and should get lower pretty fast now. Whew!


Well! I spoke too soon. It is now coming down like it did the other day when it flooded so bad. My yard, next to the street is already flooded and water is pooling front and back yards. A big wind roared through but settled down already. Oh man, I love these Monsoons. Just don't like the destruction that they are capable of.

In the Huachuca Mountains area, it seemed like this year's monsoon season was a good bit rainier than it has been for the last 2 or 3 years. Or maybe my house just happened to be a microburst target more often this year than in the past. It was good to get a lot of rain, don't get me wrong. Not used to having to stay so on top of hedge-trimming and weeding, guess I got spoiled.

Last year the area got most of its rainfall in July and very little at all in August. One thing I noticed this year was that the lightning arced from the Whetstones to the Huachucas making spectacular lightning shows

That's true.

Arizonans' lost art of having to perform hedge-trimming and weeding chores suddenly comes back into the reality of life!

Thunder and dark clouds today. Fingers crossed.

Yup. It's raining. The cool air feels great and the thunder is awesome!

This 'storm' is so awesome. Just the sounds of the thunder and now the sun is peeking through the clouds.

It was worth it to move here just to see something like this.

The storms have been dancing around me. Way around. I've only gotten a couple sprinkles and some distant thunder.

I guess last night up in Pinetop proper that had a real gully washer complete with some good sized hail.

Back east the storms are on top of you are all around, you can't see them in the distance like here and watch the rainfall. The winds/clouds/sun seems different too. It may be the scenery and the smells, etc
