Monsoon season is my favorite season of the year. Mornings are cool. The sky, bright blue, is dotted with big fluffy clouds. As the day warms, more clouds appear, still puffy, but growing in number and size. The clouds darken and fill the sky. Suddenly, there is a boom of thunder, a flash of lightening, and the sky falls, drenching everything in just a few minutes. The storm may last minutes or an hour, but is over by early evening. Then the air is clean and cool, perfect for viewing the bright stars as they light up the night sky.
