Steve and I were sitting in our office chatting. From where he sat, he saw a gust of wind bend this tree nearly to the ground. By the time I looked out the same window, the wind, though still strong, had diminished slightly. Within a few moments torrents of rain began tumbling sideways across the backyard.

For the first time in all the years of Monsoon Steve experienced, the rain threatened to penetrate the backdoor. Just when it looked like it would breach the entrance, the floodwater started to recede.

Flash flood alerts just sounded on our phones. We have been advised to avoid flooded areas. We will stay right here safe and dry.

Monsoon officially ends September 30. Will it end? We hope so.
