Why We Love Arizona: Monsoon Sunset

Monsoon Sunset: Mike in Tucson

We had a spectacular sunset last night, and I woke at 4:00 a.m. to the sound of soft, steady rain on the flat roof of our territorial style home.  Tucson only gets about 12" of rain all year long, so you can understand why we love the Monsoon season.  It begins in July when we've had three consecutive days with a dewpoint higher than 54 (google "dewpoint") and usually ends in mid-September.

Our most spectacular sunsets occur during the monsoon season.
