Default Phoenix Climate/Weather

I'm near Ellsworth and Brown. We have a pretty good lighting show going on right now. Being from the rainy Oregon coast and knowing how much I abhorred the rain up there, I can't believe what I'm about to say but I hope we get a good rain out of this.

Sorry, Maverick . . . I doubt you're going to see anything close to Oregon's rainfall tonight.

Well, my mother is in Apache Junction and she called and said it's raining there and I'm not too far from there. East Mesa so with a little luck, who knows.
Now I know I should have washed my car today. Then it would be a certainty that we get some rain tonight. lol.

Call Liberty Wildlife if you need help (I assume you can't get it back in the nest).

We got some rain here in S Tempe, enough to actually have the streets look wet.

Default Im am enjoying it right now !!!!!!

It started one and half hour ago in my area as the sky went loose with the lightening...and great thunder..I went out to the backyard... under the patio and enjoyed watching the sky ..the light was on and off as if somebody has a switch in his/her hand and playing with the light..the most shaky was the thunder ..it is noisy with big drum and cannons...it is like a war. Even I started counting after the ligtening how many seconds plus one I hear the sound of the thunder after I see the light...and then I know how miles it is far from me (1 sec.=1 mile)..it is fear and fun ..I love it..finally I went in... to my computer room and I am still hearing the fierce battle above me....Raining..my LORD..it is pouring ..the trperature is..102.

\To my friend..I wish you have some of the rain we have it right now...however, we do not have that much rain in Arizona..few times a year...after few hours..it is very dry and summer again...and back to 117-110 degrees...Last week was 114..HELP...HELP
