For all the months that nonstop blue skies have covered us like a smooth, commercially-constructed, azure blanket, these monsoon skies hold my interest like a heavenly movie with constantly changing scenes. If I walk out the door right now to take another photo, the sky will not look anything like this picture. Everything will have changed in the few minutes I’ve been lingering at my computer writing this.
Monsoon in Arizona started on June 15 and will end September 30. Three and one-half months of probable stormy weather here in the land where bad weather rarely happens at other times, is nothing less than mysterious to me. I stroll outside in the morning to look up and see the cloud formations. Today the skies are white with happily dancing clouds.
I like the dark, puffy clouds that build in the afternoon on a hot day – those make for some good storms 🙂
I like the threatening clouds, too. It’s exciting to watch a storm form. Still, I don’t want injury or damage from a storm. I just like to see the majesty of it. Blessings to you, Janna…
I think it’s all very exciting Carol Ann. It sounds like you can never be quite sure what you are going to get. I like the rain.
We are having temps in the 100 degree range this week/ YUK! 🙂
How would you like temps in the range of 105 – 115 degrees, and even higher?
You are right. The monsoon means that severe weather may develop very quickly. I’ve noticed that the warning system here is excellent.
I’m not sure where you are, but probably the humidity is usually higher than it is here. Arizona usually has low humidity. Our humidity is higher during monsoon, but much of the time it isn’t as bad as most places even in monsoon.
Thanks for stopping by Elizabeth. Blessings to you…
That is a beautiful sky.
Yes, it is. Fluffy like cotton candy. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings to you…
