Monsoon

I promise I am working on a post to explain my long blogging hiatus.  But for right now, I just have to note that our first monsoon storms paid us a visit!  On July 3, a thick, dusty haze blocked out our view of the mountains.  That night, a thunderstorm rolled into town, producing some impressive winds (chairs ended up in pools), dazzling lightning, and turned the streets of Lake Havasu City into temporary torrents.

So far, we haven’t seen anything crazy, but we have the whole monsoon ahead of us!  July 4 we did spot a Common Tern at the north end of Lake Havasu, and two biologists working at the Bill Will spotted a Brown Pelican there.  Who knows what fall will bring!
