Good-Bye Summer Monsoons

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE summers in Arizona…the hotter, the better, as far as I’m concerned.

I also love to watch the summer monsoon storms as they build in the sky throughout the day and make their approach over the valley.

Here are some of the pictures I captured just before these big, beautiful, monsoon clouds collapsed with a vengeance over our Chandler home last week.

If the monsoon season has to end, why not make it spectacular right?

This is a tree just behind our home and as the monsoon clouds were building into the monsoon storm it appeared as if the tree itself was on fire! It was truly a beautiful sight to see…!

Unfortunately, our Arizona summer is all too quickly coming to a close. The official monsoon season is June 15th – September 30th.

Yes, here in Phoenix, and surrounding areas, our temps quickly descended into the lower 90’s for our daytime highs this past week, and we will only get a final tease of summer with daytime temps in the low 100’s in the week ahead. So, as I bid my favorite time of year good-bye once again, I have no choice but to quickly turn my thoughts to making sure I have all my winter sweaters and jackets ready for the long, cold, winter ahead…Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr 🙂

All I can hope for is that it will be a DRY COLD!

Stay tuned!
