Monsoon Season

Monsoon Season here in New Mexico is July, August and September.  Monsoons are very heavy rains that last only a short time and frequently cause flash flooding.  New Mexico and Arizona both get the majority of their years worth of water via the summer monsoons.  We have been warned by lots of people that they are coming and today on our greenbelt walk I thought we (Myra and I) might be in for our first monsoon.  But no, we were in for a different kind of experience, dry rain.  That is where it rains, but because it is so dry and hot the rain doesn’t actually make it to the ground before it evaporates.  It made for a cooler walk but I was secretly hoping to get dumped on.
