Where’s the Rain?

Today is Saturday isn’t it? The day I’ve been waiting for because it is supposed to be a monsoon day with rain and gray skies. There’s not a cloud in the sky, today is exactly like yesterday, and the day before that, and every single day for months and months… blue sky, bright blinding sun, and crazy brutal hot.  How disappointing.

Phoenix must be where all the flunky meteorologists work. There is no weather here, it’s pretty hard to be wrong about weather that never changes. Why not just give a weather report once a year.  Even I could do it… and I think I will.

It will be between 105 and 118 three months of the year, monsoon may bring substantial rainfall and high winds in June and July, but only for about 10 minutes. The other nine months, expect moderate temperatures with some insignificant poor excuse for rain about a dozen times.  Don’t be fooled by clouds, it’s a safe bet to assume they are merely an overhead decoration.

Phoenix, Arizona sky at 9:30 AM…  Interesting right? LOL

  1. There was a cloud in the afternoon. Does that count?

    I’ve wondered all these things myself. I just have to “ask” my knees. I kept waiting for all those storms too. Still being forecasted into today.

    I often wonder why the meteorologists don’t just take a look out the window before they make their predictions… I’ve heard weather reports in the middle of the day, that if the radio station took the time to look outside, they wouldn’t broadcast the report… “cloudy and overcast” will be the report on the radio… and “clear sky” is the actual…

    I have never heard of a monsoon season in Arizona!… but maybe the conditions will be right later in the day? We get our best storms in the late afternoon most of the time, here in Oklahoma. I’m pulling for you to get rain, cooler temps, and a reprieve from the heat! Miracles DO happen, ya know!!
