Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Monsoon Season Here In Arizona

We have been getting settled in here at Val Vista Resort in Mesa, AZ . We have been here a couple weeks and the temp has been about 104 everyday. Not much you want to do with temps that high except go to the pool for a hour or so just to get out of the 5th wheel.

Last night we had a cook out with some new friends we have met here at the pool. Had a great dinner then we all went for a swim it was a full moon out and the water felt great.

I was woke about 3 am with thunder and lighting, I had to get up and move my Dish Tail Gator because in was sitting in the ditch behind  the 5th wheel and I figured with the rain it was going to fill up fast. Here are some before and after pictures of last night's rain.

Saw some pictures on the news and heard that schools and roads were closed. Sure hope our rig doesn't float away. Stay safe.

Looks like your park turned to a marina overnight.

Yep, that's a lot of rain! I think our park will be looking something like that by tomorrow night. Been raining most of the day today and isn't suppose to stop until late tomorrow.

Wow, your site became instant waterfront property!

We've been watching the news and the rain in Arizona has been amazing! I hope some of that water makes it to Lake Mead!

Canal St. takes on a whole new meaning in your photo. When they named it I'm sure they didn't mean the street was a canal!
