Monsoon Season

Apparently Arizona has a monsoon season. It rains every day. EVERY day. It becomes cool but HUMID (yuck, give me the dry heat any day)...and it becomes weird...like toxic toads that are bigger than your fist...don't touch 'em or you'll be in pain for many hours....

Anyway, here are some photos of the weather today....

Wow. I didn't know it EVER rained in Arizona (I guess that's California, according to the song, huh? :-)

Great photos. How beautiful...

Monsoons sound exotic...and sound like they'd grow old pretty quickly.
Take good care-- and enjoy the view.

Gorgeous, as usual. Godchild was in Tucson where she went to grad school last week. She said it was hot and dry, much better than stick NY.

Your photos have been gorgeous. Um toxic toads? Sounds like something out of a cartoon.

I actually enjoyed the monsoons in India, because they brought some relief from the heat (and occasional school closings). No toxic toads, though.

The Aim of Life

Like most people, when I was in my twenties,  I was focused on trying to figure out my life. I struggled to figure out what I was going to...
