NICE TRY

The monsoon finally arrived in our area this afternoon.

Sort of.


The sky was promising late in the afternoon.  But the rain fell beyond those mountains in the distance and all we got was a few drops.  (By the way, sorry about the power lines.)

There was a lot of hue and cry on the local television channels and, to give them their due, some areas of The Valley got some heavy rain for a few minutes.  But here?  Nada.

Still the temperature cooled 10 or 12 degrees and there is hope for the coming days.


Meantime, all we have is some pretty skies.

  3. "Close, but no cigar" as they say. We've had clouds and rain and dramaticaly (30 degrees) cooler weather here. I know it won't last, but I'm sure enjoying it for now. ;)

  6. I was so disappointed last night. I was hoping for some rain and nothing happened. I didn't even see any distant lightening. Then, when I watched the 10:00 news, I thought what is up with that? How did Chandler and Ahwatuckee luck out? Well, on second thought, those people with uprooted trees might not feel so lucky.
