We got over 2.5 inches in the Phoenix valley during the monsoon, then got another 2.5 inches courtesy of Rosa last week. More rain in the forecast. Most of the high country got a dusting of snow last week.
"You can fly a helicopter to the top of Everest and say you've been there. The problem with that is you were an a$$hole when you started and you're still an a$$hole when you get back.
Its the climb that makes you a different person". - Yvon Chouinard
Arizona got a lot of rain in October. I was coaching in a baseball showcase during the 2nd weekend and we had 2 of the 4 days rained out, with over 3" of rain in Peoria. That is the first time in about 15 years that we've ever lost a day of baseball in either June or October to rain. Locals told me it was the wettest October they've had in many, many years.
