MountainsMonsoon Season in Arizona   

When you think of the word “monsoon,” visions of hurricane force winds appear blowing everything sideways with sheets of rain pelting buildings and landscapes.  But the picture appears tropical, not with 10’ saguaro cactus!  Such is a “monsoon” in the desert.  

Monsoon season typically lasts between July and September and includes gusty winds, rain storms from out of nowhere, and quickly dropping temperatures.  It’s not uncommon for temps to drop 20 degrees in this type of storm.  Information about our weather.

But what about haboobs?  And what in the world is a haboob?  A haboob simply means a dust storm in the desert.  If a haboob, dust storm, is on the horizon it’s best to take cover.  Do not try to drive through them as that can be very dangerous.  Check out these safety tips by the experts.

Dust StormLocal businesses understand that storms can be frustrating when maintaining your car.  Danny’s Family Car Wash is offering specials that might be helpful.

So if you’re new to our area and vacationing for the summer, make sure you understand how to react should you encounter a storm.  The most important thing is to be safe, not sorry.

Yes, they are tricky and dangerous.  The road between Tucson and Phoenix can be treacherous with lots of large trucks and only 4 lanes.  Good thing you didn't run into any of them.  Have a nice weekend!

Last fall when we drove out to San Diego it had rained and desert was blooming and beauitiful.  My Donald had always said it was beautiful, but it was the first time I was there to see it for myself.  He was right.  Take care.
