Long, Humid Summer
We enjoyed a long monsoon season, including heavy rains through September and even into October! (Normally, September and October are very dry months in Arizona.)
This past summer was not particularly hot, but it has lasted well into October.
Late-season rains caused the local landscape to blossom once again, as if Spring had returned!
Even though each day felt the threat of rain, we were happy to receive every ounce of moisture. The days remained warm well into October. Notice how lush the grass remained! The downside to this warmth and moisture ... Jeff still had to mow the grass each week.
