Summer Monsoons

The Arizona monsoons are back and such a welcome blessing. Every Summer we can expect showers or thunderstorms from the middle of June to about the middle of August.
The day usually seems unbearably hot and humid (probably not as humid as some other parts of the country...) but just when you think you can't take it anymore, a few raindrops turn into an afternoon shower and cools everything refreshing. Sometimes it's just a lovely drizzle while other days it's wind, dust, lightning, and thunder. It makes for a surprising Summer!
