Hail, Hail, The Monsoon is Here!

I was lucky to be in the Tucson Mountains yesterday for the first hail storm of the season. Lots of wind, an inch of rain, thunder, lightning, and bouncing hail the size of peas. The temperature dropped from 105 to 85 in minutes. It was spectacular, of course. Twenty minutes later, it was over, the sun came out and a rainbow crossed the sky.

Most of Tucson saw little to no rain. Is this an amazing place or what?

That is what I miss most about Tucson.
