Gracious me! 

This Monsoon Season is starting out to be a doosey!

The past two days we have had rain, thunder and lightening

all day long with small pockets of respite.

Bolt lightening is new for me, being from Hawaii we have

Sheet lightening and no huge BOOOMM!

This is scarring the s#!+ out of me! 

and you wonder why I drink?

HA!  lookaround.gif

Lqtm, Joey, I have my cuppa green tea to warm me back up.

I took a walk-about and took more pictures,

not quit enough on the ground for snow-angels

the folks ‘round here must think I’m that crazy lady from down the road…

they were all staring at me through their windows as I walked around, just saying

WOW WOW THIS IS SO COOL!!

OH MY GAWD!

Got up at 7am PST here in the middle of the desert, Arizona and it was 92 !!  Now here it is about 2 hours later and it’s 102⁰ !! We have a severe heat warning and the officials want folks to stay indoors.  DH wants to go up to the pool, but I can barely breath outside!

I could never take heat like that. I thought it was hot here today. Lower 80's, if that, but wicked humid.

taken from the 'boathouse' dining room yesterday. the sunset sky was orange yellow.....very scary, ominous, surreal and weird. animals are all freaking out. we are desperately praying for the monsoons to come early.......we are desperate for any moisture.
Discussing evacuation plans over breakfast instead of the day's plans is very unnerving to say the least. When one lives in a place surrounded by wilderness and national forest it's important to have a bug out plan.
Hallelujah!!!!! it just started to rain while writing this. actually it's hail.....go figure! Bring it on whatever form it comes down in.....woohoo!

I keep WAITING for that big BOOM!

But probably another week before the Monsoon starts.

The air is so "thick" you can't see the sky, just dark yuck.

Last night it was a strange red and orange, wasn't it Joey?

I felt the same way, it's very weird and spooky...

We discussed taking off for the beaches of Cali, but everything is SOLD OUT!

I went to NOAA.gov because they have the most accurate up to date weather information and we are under both a winter storm warning and high wind warning. Winter storm warning means Significant amounts of snow, high winds warning 20 to 40 mph winds, gusting 60 to 70....guess what i found when i opened the page? Come on, guess.....
"Due to the Federal Government shutdown NOAA.gov and most associated web sites are unavailable"

thanks...

...and this is today at noon

and today at 4


This is soo not funny...

As we were finishing dinner, i remarked that this was the kind of wet heavy snow that brings tree branches down onto power lines. I should know better by now as no sooner had i finished the sentence, everything went dark and quiet. Fortunately we have a HUGE brick wood burning fireplace with a blower that will put you sitting in your ya-ya's in about an hour. We also have a vermont castings propane fireplace as well, so we were toasty. Nothing that a glass of scotch or two couldn't fix anyway. It's been a while since we went to bed with the sound of trees and our roof unloading,especially in early october. Woke up this morning to restored power and,while not quite bluebird blue, a lighter and less menacing gray colored sky and almost a foot of snow. Let the shoveling begin.....when god hands you snow, you make snowballs, so there was some of that as well. the skiers are all woohooing,and most likely were home waxing their skis. Our road is unplowed and 3 miles to the highway,my snow tires safely stored in the 'garage', so there was nothing left to do but lean into our first real 'snow' day. We have plenty of food, booze, reading material, batteries, candles, flashlights, music and firewood so life is good....even better, the bar opens early on snow days! What a difference a day makes! wink.gif
