The Monsoon season here in Arizona can start as early as the Middle of June and can last as late as the 30th of September. Right now, one can feel the humidity gradually increasing each day. This is a sure sign that the beginning of our summer rains are ready to begin. Once here, our Monsoon rains can be torrential and very dangerous. Our washes can quickly become flooded and prevent risks to pedestrians and motorists alike as can be seen by one of the photos. At the same time, the monsoons are a life line to the water table here in Southern Arizona.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
