This is a photograph of our clear blue sky tonight.

Not a cloud in sight.

Probably won't be any until the weekend, if the Weather Gods are predicting correctly.

They blew it in Tulsa last night as three tornadoes touched down in the mid-city without any warning, causing a lot of damage, a few dozen injuries but no deaths.

The Weather Gods there say the twisters came from clouds close to the ground and therefore were unpredictable.

In New Orleans a lot of rain in a short period of time overpowered the city's pumping stations and caused yet another flooded Crescent City.

And the beat goes on.

Meanwhile, here in Arizona, the skies are blue and no rain is in sight until the weekend.

Good news for the people down around Mayer who have been flooded by rain falling on ground barren after a forest fire a few weeks ago.

I often say that I live in the best possible climate zone.

I just hope the Weather Gods don't make me eat my words.
