Something wrong with this picture! A humid,climate like Florida with its sheets of rain in the summer has no actual monsoon activity? Just doesn’t sound right to me!

In the summer, I live in the mountains of Colorado. Dry, arid climate. Sparse vegetation. A rugged, rocky, thirsty land where humidity is often around 20% But we DO have an official monsoon rain season there. It is eagerly awaited every summer. The moisture flows up from Mexico, through the desert SW and into Colorado, and is an important part of the water cycle there.

But when I first heard Coloradoans talking about when the monsoon rains might start, I thought they were kidding!
