Monsoon Season

It started last Tuesday (June 27), in my book. That was the first day that it really poured in the afternoon. The official beginning was June 28, because that's when the dew point reached the requisite level. The Monsoon is expected to start around the 4th of July so this counts as early. I really like it. I don't mind getting soaked occasionally riding the bike.

Song: if I Needed You

I can hear the booming music from the Pine Mountain Ampitheater out at Fort Tuthill. They're bringing in pretty big acts to a small town and I am curious to know how many tickets they are selling. Tonight was Dwight Yoakam.... I bet it was a good show but I don't like hearing the thumping percussion into the evening---this place used to be quiet at night but for the semi-distant Interstate highway--I-17 is the one I can hear from here.
