Somewhat disappointed...

This photo is the skyline (well part of it) in Phoenix yesterday evening. My disappointment stems from the amazing weather. We were promised monsoons during monsoon season with torrential downpours that soak you to the skin just by looking at them through the window and flooding that knocks your front door in and washes away the kitchen, laundry and bed (but not the TV, sofa or your golf clubs which have been carefully secured) and lightening and thunder that power small cities and then deafen the inhabitants. Hopefully this blog post will be the equivalent of the Native American rain dance and summon the real monsoons. The first monsoon of the season (It was a dark and stormy night) was a bit of a damp squib.

It worked! How about that storm Monday evening?

There was definitely a lot of rain. Perhaps I'm expecting too much or my expectations have been stretched beyond reasonable expectations. The radio mentioned this morning that this is the wettest year this millennium.
