It is monsoon season here in Tucson, Arizona, and I must say I’m enjoying the dramatic weather changes that brings. I mean, as much as I love the seemingly never-ending stream of sunny days, I find I’ve missed actual, well, weather. You know, like clouds and rain and such. So it is good to know that there is a season here where it does get cloudy, and it has even rained! Four times so far that I’ve personally witnessed, and two of them were pretty heavy (the other two times, well, if there were at least enough water drops to be noticeable on my front window, that counted as rain).
Nekoka could care less about monsoon season. Even when its cloudy, it’s bright enough to sun bathe.
Okay, yeah, I’m a grandmother so I guess I can get away with throwing in a gratuitous photo of Lilith.
Sometimes I just stand outside on my back porch and watch the clouds roll in. I absolutely love the privacy having a back yard brings. Yes, I hang up my laundry outside in my pajamas. But I do put on a hat on those days when it isn’t building up for some dramatic weather event. That is one of the big changes between Pennsylvania and Tucson. You wear a hat when you go outside.
Except when it looks like this. But notice – all this drama – and still, no actual rain is falling. But that’s okay – the temperature has dropped below 100 degrees so all is good!
