is that what I think it is?!

*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).


  1. That was pretty cool last night! The lightning was awesome!

  2. Monsoon season has been a bust here! I'm seriously getting really aggravated over it. I never thought I'd care so much about the weather, but after 17 years of knowing crazy monsoons during July, I expect some damn rain! I'm hoping it makes up for it by raining for a week straight or something.

  3. I totally understand, Amanda. I remember how crazy the storms got and each year I wait anxiously for them to hit as hard as I remember. and it gets frustrating because I drive to work each day and see the damage it does here. no fair!


thanks for taking the time to add some input and love :)
