    We’re having our spring monsoons. It’s wonderful. I went to high school in the desert; it ruined me for heat. I start bitching at 80 degrees.Report

    Cascadian – I love monsoons. We get them here, too. Actually right now it’s lovely outside. It’s inside that’s killing me. It just gets stifling in my office. We get nowhere the monsoons that Vancouver gets, but for a mountain town surrounded by deserts on all sides, a couple months of hard rain is a damn fine thing….Report

  3. Meh. I’ll trade you – it’s been overcast, gloomy, and rainy every day here in Jersey for the last week or so. I’ve forgotten what the sun looks like, which is not a good thing for the first week of May.Report

    Cascadian – I live in Flagstaff @ 7000 ft in the largest Ponderosa forest in the world, and totally surrounded by desert on all sides. It’s lovely. Jermoe is also lovely. We go there now and then – it’s about an hour and fifteen minutes from here. I went to a wild VW van gathering – forget what it was called – lots of pot smoking VW pseudo-hippies. Great views from the hillside there, too. Some amazing camp sites at the top of that mountain….Report

    Cool. I’ve only driven through Flagstaff but love Sedona. Do you have a van? I’m a huge fan of vintage buses. I have a ’79 and ’78 Westy. I like the way they’re set up for camping. I’m starting to get an awful itch for a 23 window.Report

    Sedona’s beautiful but way too touristy and busy for me anymore. Great hikes, though. Really tremendous, breath-taking views, especially if you know where to go. I don’t have a van anymore – and never had a VW. At the time I went in my giant Chevy Beauville which dwarfed pretty much every other vehicle there, though lacked in many other ways but especially charm. What a trip, though.Report
