    Heavy rains, severe thunderstorm

    Has already hit Toronto, apparently very heavy rains.

    Just starting to hit Ottawa area now... Poor Mindy is already getting spooked.

    Perfect night for a horror movie if we don't lose power...

    I can't wait for it to rain in Arizona so it will cool down. Should rain by this weekend. Much of the state has been precipitation free for almost 3 months. It is so dry all the parks and trails are closed to prevent people accidentally starting more fires.

    Weather often seems to be one extreme or another these days, doesn't it?

    Regarding pets and thunder, I used a Thundershirt for my dog in Florida and it really helped. They sell them for cats too:

    She's usually okay as long as I'm close by.

    In any case, it turned out to be much ado about nothing. About 30 minutes of rain, some strong gusts of wind, a bit of lightning, and now the sun is out. Guess we just got the edge of the storm.

    Just watched that video though. I should look into that even for just getting her into the carrier for the vet.

    That is what happens here in the winter with the storm warnings. Weather service warns we may get 4 inches of snow. We are more likely to get just a dusting of snow.

    Snow in Arizona? How often?

    Re: Heavy rains, severe thunderstorm

    It snows at least 5 or 6 times each winter where I am in North Arizona. I live in the mountains about a mile above sea level. So I live where the "mountain breeze meets the desert."

    Phoenix is what most people think of. It is a valley closer to sea level and about 2 hours south. It is much hotter at about 20 degrees Fahrenheit more. So today it was like 91 Fahrenheit here (33 C) and 110 F (43 C) in Phoenix.

    The reason we moved to Arizona was we were on vacation and were shocked how cool it was in the summer in Flagstaff (which is on the way to the Grand Canyon). But it is expensive to live in Flagstaff, so I live halfway between Flagstaff and Phoenix.

    It snows a lot in Flagstaff though, and it is a popular place to go skiing.
