Monsoon season is here. Wind and rain are the topic of the day. A big hubub over the haboob word caused quite a reaction from a lot of people. Haboob is an Arabic word. It refers to the huge dust storms they have. We have them here too. A lot of folks were upset and said to just call it a dust storm because of the origin of the 'H' word. Origin of the word? Hmm . . then what about Taco and Pina Colada?
Anyway, the rain is pretty much hit and miss as usual. While one part of town is getting a drenching, the other part is enjoying the sunshine. Hopefully we will have a wet monsoon season, we can sure use the water.
Our landscape plants enjoy the rain. A drink of fresh rain water perks them right up. I'm looking forward to more. It cools things down for a day or two which helps in the hot summer temperature.
