Storm clouds over Walmart Market

Well, here's the end of another week. Where does the time go? And why do I ask rhetorical questions?

It has stormed quite a bit over the last week. Monsoon can be exciting for locals in Tucson. I've written about this in past summers (and even earlier this summer). The weather is so nice most of the time in this area that a simple thunderstorm throws the population into a frenzy. I suppose some flooding, power outages, down power poles and trees, and a little mayhem can do that.

This weekend, I enjoyed my day off on Saturday with some napping, a visit to Walgreen's to pick up a prescription, and getting some work done for the show on my laptop while watching TV. Today, I spent a few hours doing some yard work (at least it was in the 90's as opposed to over 100 degrees), then a trip to the grocery store. Anthony stayed home again today so I had to muddle through solo.

I'm doing some multitasking while writing this. Listening to the police scanner, monitoring Twitter traffic on @whatsuptucson, and watching "Ozzy and Jack's World Detour" on the History Channel. It's a pretty interesting show, I'd recommend checking it out. Jack Osbourne has turned out to be an interesting, well spoken guy in his adulthood and Ozzy is still a fascinating guy after all these years. The episode I'm watching is them visiting the Alamo in San Antonio. Ozzy was apparently banned from there after he urinated on the property in 1982 and they're visiting to clear up the record about what really happened.

I shot a few photos of the brewing storm clouds while standing in the parking lot at Walmart Neighborhood Market today at Broadway and Camino Seco:
