This years monsoon season has been a little crazy, here was one of the recent haboobs. “From google: History: this term has been used to describe dust storms in general since at least the 1800s. In Arizona, the term went mainstream with the 1972 article, An American Monsoon. A haboob is a dust storm generated by the down drafts of a thunderstorm. Cold down drafts are more dense and move out ahead of the storm (outflow).”
You could not even see through the yard. What is weird is we never used the term or even heard haboob till a few years ago, we always just said monsoon season. The dust is so bad and you don’t even want to see the back patio. Sometime we talk about enclosing it so that we can sit out and enjoy it…and keep the birds…and toads off it.
You can see the angry sky here.
Within 5 minutes we had all this rain, it started coming down right before one of my lives.
I am glad that Jeff drives a 4 wheel drive truck and I work from home cause I would not want to even attempt to drive my car through that.
But the bushes (and the weeds) sure love all the rain that we have had this year. When it rains in the desert, it pours.
I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the pictures from the last few months and not just always see cards etc.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.
