You may have heard on the national weather report that Arizona (Phoenix) has had one heck of a monsoon rain this week. It’s very true. Tempe got a good 3 inches and just north of Florence got 4 inches of the wet stuff that occasionally falls from the desert sky. They had some filled up washes and a few flooded roads which is typical around here. We had a little rain here at the park too, but not even an inch total. No real “storm” for us so you don’t need to be concerned about your winter paradise. The wet weather has raised our humidity level to 46% though…..and we don’t like that! We’re not used to humidity. The temps are lower though….back under the triple digits so we take the good with the bad. Overall…..I still love it here.
The new Fry’s Marketplace is scheduled to open this week on north Pinal Ave. The paper says the store will feature a butcher shop, expanded wine shop, garden center, pool and patio, home fashions and furnishings, electronics and entertainment center, Nature’s Market nutrition center, Starbucks Coffee bar, service meat and seafood departments in addition to full grocery. I’ll have to take a trip over there once the mad rush is over.
