Currently in Goodyear AZ (Low 87 Sunny High 109)
There have been other monsoon storms in the Phoenix area but we had our first major monsoon in our area yesterday, 60 mph dust storm and rain, made for an interesting afternoon.
There were 5 microbursts in the metro area in this storm. There also was a gustnado in the west valley where we are.
A gustnado is a weak, short lived tornado like vortex. The window facing the rain leaked so we have to get that fixed. There were lightning strikes that caught palm trees on fire across the valley. Here is one in Ahwatukee.
Finally, we are so glad to have our generator because the power went out a little after 4p.
We had air conditioning and TV until the power came back on about 1030p, 5 and 1/2 hours that we used our generator. We are luckier than some that are still without power Friday morning.
Never a dull moment in this lifestyle.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
