Night before last we had a major monsoon storm (the first major one this year and one of the worst since 1983). I rather enjoyed it because, unlike some, it only had moderate thunder & lightening--but it rained heavily from about 8 in the evening through midnight (when I went to bed) or possibly later.
No particular problems where I live, but major flash flooding about two miles from here. The headline THIRD MAJOR FLOOD SINCE 1983 LEAVES AREA A MUDDY MESS
tells the story of the devastation of a posh neighborhood near the Tanque Verde Wash.
But all the rivers, washes & streams were running. And since the city fathers have chosen not to have storm drains, but to let rain water run off down the streets, I was most relieved to have the storm hit at night instead of during the (more typical) evening rush hour. Still, must hope for more of the same because we've been in a drought for about 10 years.
