Monsoons in Arizona

Posted on October 27, 2010. Filed under: The places we have been | Tags: , , , , , , |

So we have plenty of sun filled days in Arizona. Lots and lots.

However when the rain comes it comes in like a Lion.

Monsoons.

I didn’t know what to expect, but I have to say I was really impressed.

After months of months of the same beautiful sunny weather.

TB and I were mesmerized with the first big monsoon headed our way.

Yes we sat outside for over an hour watching the storm approach and the rain come down.

I laughed at us going I can understand why their our storm chasers.

We had seen our share of the lightning storms.

We had heard the stories of the monsoons.

But this was our first experience.

Huge pieces of hail falling from the sky. Causing thousands and thousands of damage to cars all around. Fortunately ours were in the garage.

Just crazy intense rain.

TB thought ahead and moved out our grill so it could get cleaned. Worked wonders.

 

I always love a good rainstorm, but this was just spectacular.

Monsoon season is done for the year, but looking forward to a more active season next year!

For now bring on more sun and the wonderful fall and winter weather!

Monsoons

Our first monsoon season in Arizona. You can smell the rain – love that. The lightning storms are amazing. We can watch the storms approaching from our roof top deck. Yet for 4 days now we have watched and watched storms, smelled and smelled rain– but not a single drop as come to our house. It seems to go all around us. Never have I wanted to get a drizzle more in my life. Maybe our luck will change soon…but for now I will enjoy the view the monsoons bring.
