A brief shower never ruined a perfect afternoon

If you happen to live in Arizona one of the things you get used to is that if you don't like the weather, simply wait a few moments and it will change.  It is a common phrase heard up here in the mountains because on any given day you might get to experience all four seasons in the span of an afternoon.  You get very used to sudden, violent rainstorms that pass as quickly as they came that can sometimes drop the temperature by twenty or thirty degrees and leave inches of hail in it's wake that looks like snow.  Any outdoor event or gathering is quite often dotted with moments of scrambling for shelter or donning a light sweater or jacket; but you always know it won't last, whatever the disturbance has been.  Lately, it has been absurdly hot for us and I have been praying for a change, which of course I got!  Now the days are spattered with thunder storms and the temps have dropped by around seven degrees, which is just enough to bring some relief.  I was out over the weekend and got caught in one of our gorgeous monsoon storms, and it never "dampened" our spirits, after all, a brief Summer shower never ruined a perfect afternoon.

Waiting for the rain to stop
It is a great time to kick off those heels that have been biting at your toes for the last few hours, hike up that skirt and go scampering through the woods, jumping puddle to puddle.  I am a girly girl in a lot of ways, but I have still never owned a gown or a dress that couldn't withstand a little bit of mud, including my wedding dress.  Though I do have to say, explaining to the dry cleaner all those years ago why the bottom of it looked like I had gone mud bogging was interesting.  The marriage may have only lasted a couple of years but that dress is still perfectly preserved in a box somewhere in my attic.  So if you too are caught this Summer in an afternoon storm, don't fret, enjoy the moment and let your inner tomboy run free!
