Summer monsoon in Arizona
This is just a quick note. Had a nice thunderstorm roll through the other day. Rain, hail, thunder and lightning, 50 to 60 MPH winds. We were all safe, but I can’t say the same about the house. The wind ripped some roof shingles off and blew a tree down. Granted, there are other places that have to deal with much more severe consequences of weather. It is not a regular occurrence here.
My morning consisted of cutting down the tree that was resting on my neighbor’s gate. A couple of power outlets in the back yard aren’t working. It’s been a fun day so far. Then as I was sitting at my desk looking out my window, a hawk captured a lizard and was eating it. My daughter wasn’t very happy about it. It’s the circle of life, but that didn’t help much.
The tree that blew over
On top of snakes in my yard, rabbits, lizards, tarantulas, a small snake inside my house, a dove that likes to fly into my windows, and now a hawk eating a lizard in my tree. Nature and wildlife are cool, just not so much at my house. I don’t think I have a sign up that invites animals in. It keeps me entertained I guess.
