Mother Nature surely knows how to pile on the misery in Arizona.  I wonder what factors generate haboobs?

Over here in Glendale, yesterday was something but we need the rain. My daughter lost a tree but no house damage. Next few days will be pop up showers.

I LOVE the haboobs and monsoons! Robot LOL

When the rain started awhile ago, I jumped in my car and drove over to the park & parked for awhile.

I kind of like the storms. It’s usually calm and sunny first part of the day then stormy afternoon and evening, where I’m located.

I like them as long as I'm at home and looking out.  Today I decided to run an errand around 4pm and as soon as I went into the garage and heard the wind I thought "not again".  But I went ahead and ran the errand.  Overall, the storm was much less intense than yesterday.

@Azcowgirl.    That's the Southwest for you; the heat of the day generates storms.  In the mountains you can almost set your watch by the time the afternoon storms occur.  We have the same here in NM.  We don't have dust storms with them, however, and just small, pea-sized hail occasionally

When we get monsoon storms here in Tucson, the outflow & downdraft of the winds want to travel downhill.  Since Tucson is a higher elevation than the Phoenix metro area, the wind travels north towards Phoenix across open desert & fallow agricultural land & picks up the dust & dirt & throws it at Maricopa County.

Daughter lives in Gilbert - will call her. We talk every Thursday, may call a day early. Thank you.

These can give one Valley Fever. (dogs too) It's a life long health issue for some.
