Happy 4th of July! Here come the monsoons! PDF Print E-mail

My best wishes to you and your family and friends for a fun, safe 4th of July holiday!  

This weekend is traditionally the start of Tucson's monsoon season.  It is an annual weather pattern  that brings thunderstorms and sometimes torrential rain to this otherwise desert city. 

Please exercise care when driving during monsoon season.  Beware of washes with flowing water.  Do not drive around barricades that have been set up.  Each year people are killed in dangerous flash floods.  Exercise caution and good judgement. 

If you're new to town, you'll experience the unique smell of the desert just before it rains.   It is the smell of the creosote bush, which is a native Arizonan plant.   To a Tucsonan who has survived the month of June, with  triple digit temperatures and months of no rain, it is a welcome smell indeed!

Again, have a fun and safe holiday!
