Monsoon season


Usually, summer is my favorite season. This year, with all the fires (I think there were 8 wildfires burning at one point), it has been hard to enjoy the heat. 500 homes have burned to the ground, and at least 2 people are dead.

The past couple of days have brought us the mixed blessing of a sort of mini-monsoon weather pattern. The sky clouds over and we get the occasional smattering of highly localized rain, which is good for fire fighting, but the winds also kick up and lightening increases.

Kind of ominous, isn’t it?

I’m guilty of loving thunderstorms nearly as much as I love summer, even though they have caused many of our fires. Watching towering clouds lit by lightening move across the plains is the best fireworks show on earth.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
