Desert and rain? Whaaaa? Arizona? With rain? Mind blown.
Not just rain but Snow in Arizona, it's snowing up in Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon right now.
Snow Bowl, the Flagstaff ski resort has extended the ski session to May 5th! It helps when you can make your own snow if needed but it really hasn't been ;-}
Though it's 'spring hot' 85-95F right now down here in Phoenix the Monsoon will be here in 2-3 months and fill all the water sheds as this year is predicted to be the 'end of the drought' in the Desert SW.
We get 'weather' here, but after ~50 years in this ~20 mile radius I have never been hit with any weather or other natural disaster damage.
In short I found a safe comfortable place and staying here.
I do have to wonder about the sanity of those that want to make a HOME in a place known for catastrophic events...
And then rebuild in the same place!
