Monsoonal second wind

The Sonoran Desert missed its summer monsoon season.


Monsoons in the American Southwest are the “swamp equivalent” of our summer wet season.

Only unlike our 8-10 inch wet season months, the summer storms in the Sonoran muster only 2-3 inches per month in comparison.

That sounds more like a dry season month here in the swamp.

This year their monsoon season came up dry,

dropping the perennially-flowing (a rarity in the desert) San Pedro to a historic ebb.

But in stepped El NiƱo to save the day,

Filling up January to a “swamp-like” 10 inch total.

Now that does sound like the Floridian wet season!
