Just waiting for the thunderstorms, as promised in the weather forecasts...
This morning the clouds darkened the city so much I had to double check that my phone didn't change time zones 3 hours ahead. Streetlamps were still on.
Oh wow! And was there a big storm?
Not particularly, pretty run-of-the-mill, as far as storms are concerned. Earlier this week we had a 30 minute storm that must have laid down a fair few inches. When I lived in Arizona, we once got 4.5 inches overnight and it flooded everything for days. Public parks turned into swimming pools. Lucky I didn't get giardia.
WOAH! Once that a once in a lifetime occurrence for Arizona?
It's been years since I've been to Arizona but I remember there being a big downpour when I was there one time. I imagine it comes after long periods of dryness. Perhaps the downpours have gotten worse in recent years.
Definitely once-a-decade at least. Arizona actually has a monsoon season every July-September, so at least once a year there's a storm that comes through with an inch or two.
