Monsoon Season

Monsoon Season is here again. Out here in AZ we get some pretty spectacular storms this time of year. Now again people, I’m not claiming to be the “all things desert expert” so I’m not about to start explaining what exactly a monsoon is and why. Not my job. Go to Arizona Monsoon for much more accurate information if that’s what you were hoping for.image

No, my purpose is to give you my view of this desert. To bring you here as a friend. To show you how cool the desert is. To pry you away from the inside and take you outside for a while.image

So, this time of year storms start to build up throughout the day. The clouds in the sky seem to change and grow with this amazing bright blue background.

Yesterday the storms didn’t really hit our area until much later in the evening. These storms bring some serious howling wind and dust that just pelts you. Really not fun if you wear contacts.image

Last night, over here next to the mountain, we hardly felt any rain, light sprinkles with seriously strong winds so the rain dried out before it hit the ground. Over in Phoenix they saw real rain. You never know really where the rain is going to show up.image

We also get these massive dust storms called Haboobs. giggle. Ok again I’m not Sam Champion and I am not going to explain the inner workings of a Haboob. giggle. Its super dry. The wind blows hard. Dust goes into the air. A LOT of it. You can’t see at all. It’s like a brown clouded nightmare coming at you. The “Desert Doppler” can tell you I guess. “Doppler”. giggle.Fabulous pictures of these massive walls of dust are online. I personally have none…yetimage

The sky alone out here is worth the trip if you were not sure about coming to see Arizona.
