More Monsoon Season

Saturday, July 29th, 2017

Monsoon season began July 11 with the first thunderstorm. We missed the worst of the flooding which has been significant in the lower part of Tucson. We are in the foothills and while there is considerable runoff in local streets, we have seen no flooding.

Back Yard

While we have had enough hard rain to hide the mountains behind us,the city has had flooding.

Flooding

The flooding has been worst in the southeast part of the city and we are northwest.

gutters

I had installed new larger gutters in anticipation of monsoon season but the rain that day exceeded their capacity and they were overflowing.

Rainbow

We did have a rainbow the other day.

End of the Rainbow

It’s not often the you live at the end of the rainbow but we did that day.

Monsoon season, in other years I have been here, lasts until late August so we have a month more.
