The Monsoon is moving into southeastern Arizona and soon the daily afternoon thunderstorms will be upon us for another season. I just hope the storms will be on the gentle side. Last year was a tough one and the storms brought micro bursts that destroyed many roofs and knocked down power lines. Heavy rains caused flooding that destroyed Sabino Canyon in the Coronado State Park. It washed out roads and most picnic areas on the caynon trails. We had white water for two weeks in Tanque verde creek. So. Maybe this year, we’ll receive a more tolerable Monsoon. Well anyway, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that there will be no flooding, property damage or injuries this year. All one can do with nature, is hope for the best and expect the worst. Feel free to comment. Season goes from Jun 15, to Sept. 30.
