It's Downright Chilly!

Okay, that's not actually true. We are having our "monsoon" season right now, though. What does that mean? Well, it doesn't mean what it means in Asia. It's Arizona's monsoon season, which means that we get about an inch of rain over a month and a half, and it's humid and gross for about that long. Yesterday was the first day since the beginning of June it didn't get to 100 degrees! In fact, as I type this at 5:43 pm, my desktop temperature icon is showing 83 degrees. Of course, the dewpoint is over 60, so it's not exactly pleasant. Tim and I were talking last night during the news. The weather guy had just said it only got to 95 degrees yesterday and we both said "wow, that's cool" and the weather forecast even had a picture of a penguin on it! We both come from cold climates, and we both thought we were rather pathetic for thinking that 95 is cool! July in Phoenix, though - 95 is cool!

I love the thunderstorms. The past few nights we've had some major dust storms and tons of lightning and thunder. I don't know what it is, but it just makes it easier to sleep when it's raining!
