Sudden downpour...

Arizona monsoon is a funny thing. The skies can be clear one minute and the next, you have water blowing in at you in every direction. CRAZY STUFF! I love it though!

I caught a couple pics of the sudden downpour that we got just a bit ago. There was hail too, but you can't see it in any of the pics I got. As soon as it started, I thought of my mil, who mentioned a few days ago in a comment she left on my sil's blog, how much she misses monsoon season...

ENJOY!...




Fortunately, Josiah stayed home today, so I had a car to pick up the kids from school. Although I'm sure they would have loved to walk home in it!

Okay, so where in the world did this sudden rain come from. It down poured for a good 30 minutes. Love it! I cant believe how cool it is outside. I have to say its quite refreshing.

Yeah, we just got wind and dust. I was hoping for the rain. Maybe tomorrow.

That's what's so crazy about monsoons, it's not like we live far from eachother and yet all we got was dark skies, thunder and some sprinkles. I did love it though. It was nice to have the temos drop like that!

Well, It's POURING her now!!! I know it was pouring a while ago and let off but it kicked back up here within the last few minutes (around 9:45 pm).

Well, it started raining here about 8:30. It rained pretty good for a while with sprinkling off and on since.

I love monsoons! Thanks for the picture. BTW your scrapbook pages are really cute. My scrapbooks are severly neglected. I really need to get them up to date.

Oh, I miss that too! So much! I don't even remember the last time it rained here in CA. Not once this summer so far. I love monsoons!

Don't you love it? So fun this time of year! My boys check the weather channel every day hoping it says it's going to rain.
