We were considering moving up there but after seeing how people behave to their neighbors and acquaintances in a town that small, it is just scary.
Payson is WAY over there <-------.

We had a real rain last night. Today it's muggy & cloudy & that's just fine with me. Just means it may rain again.

The rain didn't start until after I went to bed. How refreshing to listen to the rain come down. It lulled me into sleep.

Hey, Meo... you may not realize it, but you're finally speaking like an Arizonan.

Thanks Colt!

There are times I miss those 10,000 lakes but the positives of Arizona so outweigh any negatives. (I 'm trying to think of a negative & I can't come up with one. Will have to ponder that.)

Third day in a row we've had clouds and thunder and actually got a little rain earlier today. It's cooler out but, boy, is the humidity 'thick'. I do love to go to sleep listening to the rain.

Whoa - the mist surrounding the mountains was beautiful this morning. It's starting to burn off now but am awfully glad I was awake to see it.

I do have a question about the ants. This is the first time I've seen such a horde of them. Is this normal during monsoon? I am going to the store to buy a spray bottle and fill it with vinegar and water to spray outside my door but wonder how long this infestation lasts.

I have never seen anything like this before. Another Arizona quirk?

I should add that they are all outside. Haven't seen any inside at all.

Yes, ants of every size and color are one of the many invasions which Arizona receives during Monsoon time. They come, they go. They form long lines and parade by our homes...

Is it possible to get tornadoes in northeastern AZ since it's fairly open and flat with the recent monsoon moisture?
