We’ve recently had hot, humid, weather due to the Arizona/California desert monsoons.
I’m not a fan of humidity.
If I can, I hibernate until it goes away.
Monsoon weather does make for striking photos, though.

I took the above photo on Sunday.
It rained a (very) little on my drive to the beach.
In the photo, you can see the rain falling in the distance out at sea.
Towards the end of my visit, the lifeguard pulled everyone out of the water due to an approaching lightning storm.
Lightning storms don’t happen here.
I don’t know if anyone really believed him as he tried to warn people.
(Although, you can see how ominous the clouds were in the above photo.)
I’m sure many of you have heard one person was injured on Catalina Island due to the lightning.
One person died and several more were injured at Venice Beach in L.A. County.
The whole thing is very abnormal for Southern California.
We have extreme drought conditions here.
Rain would be welcome.
Lightning, however, is not.
Lightning creates wild fires ….
