Storm Time

Have I mentioned yet that I absolutely love Arizona's monsoon season? I absolutely love Arizona's monsoon season! Especially this year, as it is actually (to some degree) approaching the kinds of storms we used to have years ago. Tonight, for example, it started pouring like the end of the world here in Chandler. Noisy, tons of flooding, everything absolutely soaked. The streets were running. Not too long after the downpour started, the water level was climbing up my tires, ending up just below the wheel. The *sidewalks* had a current of running water, easily an inch or more deep. Booming thunder, shaking everything, coming just after lightning strikes, indicating the storm was directly overhead... Man, it was great. Good storm. Came down a little too fast to be terribly beneficial to the soil, but it was good to have that powerful weather.
