Monsoon Madness

This is the time of year when we Zonies get more than a little crazy from the heat. We’ve had it up to here with the 24/7 oven blasts and we’re all about to have a psychotic break. The weather seems to sense this and uncannily matches our mood, with wild swings of weather from hot to cool, sprinkles to deluges. Everyone wants to flee this time of year, but those of us who stay are treated to some mighty fine Monsoon Madness Moments. For everything you gain, you lose something. And for everything you lose (your sanity, for example), you gain something—a nightly visual feast. Enjoy!
