Thunderheads arrive finally in our desert

You know, Arizona and New Mexico have had monsoonal moisture now for several weeks.  We've been without them.  We usually have monsoons in July and August, but this year, July has been dry...VERY dry.  It hasn't been that hot.  In fact, most days have been either average or below average (that is, until next week, when it will be 111 degrees here...sigh...).  Nobody has complained about our weather this summer.  Nobody, that is, except for me.  I miss the clouds.  I loved our Sunday night storm over in Arizona, with its rain, thunder, and lightning.  We haven't had that here yet...But, this morning, clouds were all around our valley and this afternoon, thunderheads are developing over our mountains.  We may actually get rain in the next couple of days!  FINALLY~~~
