*squeeeaaaaal!* we've finally been blessed with a "monsoon" storm tonight. ok, it really wasn't much of a monsoon where I live, but I'm sure it north of us. I could see it! it did rain for like 30 seconds here. and the lightning and thunder was very exciting and frequent. that's my favorite part anyways. actually I think I love the rain as equally. especially the desert smell after it rains. mmm. I guess I love everything about the monsoons. except the wind. it was a bit windy here, but not too intense. it definitely wasn't an intense monsoon like I remember as a kid, but it was something. more than we've had. and just enough to remind me that it's coming soon.
this probably wasn't blog worthy, but I was dang excited. I woulda taken pictures of the lightning like I used to when I was a kid, but it takes a lot of patience and a lot of room on your memory card in order to maybe get one decent picture of a lightning bolt. and I have to go to bed because I have to work tomorrow. bleh. work.
me waiting for the monsoons is like a drug addict waiting for their next hit. I'm itching for it. I think about it all the time. I dream about it even. it's crazy and silly, I know, but if you lived in arizona and you experienced our monsoons back in the day, you'd understand (assuming you're ok with lightning, rain, thunder, and wind).
