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….

As the monsoon was blowing in over the mountains:



And as the monsoon blew away…

About Terri C Pilarski

I am an Episcopal priest serving a delightfully progressive, interesting, creative congregation. I have been married more than half my life to the same man. We have two grown children, plus two dogs and two cats, although the number of four legged household members changes from time to time. I love to garden, knit, read, and play on Facebook or with my blog. I have been a practitioner of daily meditation since I was nineteen. I practice yoga five days a week and walk every where I am able too.

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