Looks Can Be Deceiving

Tucson experiences the Monsoon Season from June 15th to September 30th.  Every day, usually in the afternoon, we get rain.  Often it's a short bout of rain but other times, it can be quite torrential.

Then it just stops.  And the sun comes out again.

I took this photo today as the clouds were gathering over the mountain.  I could hear thunder in the distance, the sky was darkening, and the light was eerie.  Some may say this is a beautiful scene.  That they love the mountain.  Or the saguaros.  Or the blue sky peeking through the clouds.

But what you can't tell from this photo is that it was 108 degrees out.


I could barely stand it long enough to take the picture.  It's like walking into an oven.

And that's why I'll continue my love of the indoors.  Me, a book, some music, maybe a little TV, snacks, frosty beverages, and ice-cold air conditioning.

You're welcome to join me.
