Monsoon in Full Swing

Ask most Arizonans what their favorite time of year is and you’re bound to hear from most of them that it is the summer monsoon season, the so-called second spring.  It really does bring the deserts to life, creating an abundance of new plant growth, insects, and stirring breeding activity in all sorts of critters.  The storms themselves can be spectacular.  Earlier today, a super storm passed through the neighborhood, knocking out power briefly, with lots of spectacular lightning flashes and booming thunder.  Now that night has fallen, the Couch’s Spadefoots are out calling by the dozens.  I’ve attached a sound file so you can hear what an amazing din they make.  This is right outside my apartment at the edge of the parking lot.  Got to love it!
