Our First Monsoon Storm of the Season...Sort of

Apparently while we slept last night (well, while Melon Man slept and I TRIED to sleep), there was a monsoon down in Tempe. Of course. It always misses us. I hate Tempe and Mesa and Chandler and Gilbert just for that reason. They hog all the monsoon storms.

Well, I didn't think we'd get anything today either since the skies were pretty clear, all things considered for this time of year, when I left work today. But, in the two hours time from leaving work until getting done with dinner, the sky definitely changed and we soon had a black sky looming overhead.

I was so hopeful for a deluge of rain. But, it mainly just blew and sprinkled. Bummer. Maybe tomorrow will be better. I just LOVE monsoon season. It washes all the dust and dirt off your roof and sidewalks and just seems to make things fresh again!

We got hit hard last night around 11:30 pm I woke from a dead sleep and thought we where having an earthquake the house was rattling from the wind and thunder. I loved it.
