SCHOOL STARTS JULY 30th in PAYSON! When I was a kid Summer vacation meant June, July and August. even when I was a teacher (14 years worth) I started teaching somewhere around Labor Day.

But this year it drizzled rain and we didn't feel like sitting in it for hours to get a spot. We took our Jeep Wrangler on a dirt road toward the edge of a hill ov...
                              THe Monsoon is officially on in the Southwest. This year they just defined it by DATE, not by 3 days in a row with a dewpoint over 55 as in past years.
