Rain

Wow nasty people above saying to just leave I am so sorry for those creepy people answering back like that I came here 30 years ago from Illinois and this dryness is terrible I Miss the Rains I wish the monsoons would be great this year.. we definitely need to pray on that.. I have been seeing beautiful pictures of other states that have so much Beauty including Washington.. I'm glad you're here you sound like a nice person totally understand you being overwhelmed by this heat and dryness.. I've been here 30 years and I'm overwhelmed! Take care

Northern Arizona - dry, dry, dry

We live in Prescott Valley where there were wildfire evacuations this past week - it's a mile high desert climate -- and was a welcome relief from Phoenix where we used to live. Two Summers ago we had record rains in August and now I don't even need one hand to count the number of times it's rained in the past year (and that's being generous because you need to include sprinkles!). Let's do a group rain dance for some good monsoons for all of the Southwest!!!

rain dance for Monsoon

We certainly need the rain and hopefully it will happen before long....but instead of a rain dance, lets try a group prayer. Maybe if enough of us ask for rain the ONE that can bring it to Arizona will see that it happens.

Rain

Yes wonderful idea!

Praying for rain

Yes. I keep praying for rain every day!

Rain Dance or Group Prayer/Meditations

I totally agree that everyone living in Phoenix should pray and/or meditate on rain to relieve us from the heat and help out our trees, flowers and plants. Fortunately, desert adapted and native AZ plants are usually fine as long as they get deep-soaking rain a couple times throughout the year. My flower garden and shrubs usually only need deep watering once a week but they do love it when it rains here. I have more appreciation for rain here than I did growing up in the Midwest. Rain here in the summer especially is very welcome! As long as it's not too much to cause excessive flooding. Every year whenever I hear it might rain, I meditate on gentle rain falling, just the right amount and so far this year and last year the rainfall at our house was nice. But rain falls at different amounts and different times all over the Valley.

Ruidoso, NM - Hot & Dry

Just read Paula's comment about weather in Roswell, NM, about 75 miles east of Ruidoso. While Roswell is typically warmer than Ruidoso most of the year (Ruidoso's at 7,200 ft, Roswell at 3,500) the rain situation is just as critical. Can't even remember the last time it rained, seems like well over a year ago. On top of that, no snow fall this past winter. No snow cap at all. Hunters here say the tall trees here haven't changed to that dry dull color they get from lack of moisture (hopefully trees are getting moisture from underground because risk of fire here is severe every day), but for human folk, we desperately need some rain. Also, it's only early May and today was record high of 85. With mid to high 80's expected to remain for a few weeks. I've lived here for 15 years and definitely see a warming trend. I love New Mexico, but moved up in the mountains for the cooler weather and four seasons. Now it feels like the White Sands Desert weather is slowly creeping up the mountain for good. It's scary to think that this may become the norm for us at higher elevations. Next move might have to be to Belize. At least I can jump in crystal blue water and cool off!

moisture and heat

we have not had any moisture in Roswell NM for about 175 days and here it is early April and today we are at 94 degrees. You don't even include any of this in your info for the desert.

Heat and Dust in NM

I am currently out of state but friends are telling me of terrible dust and how there is now a red-flag alert for AZ and NM for fires...it is surprising not highlighted here somehow...

Temperature

Phoenix will be getting hotter and not cooler as too much buildings being built and not being protected from holding in heat as only one in a thousand do to keep heat away and try to keep it cooler.
Eventual the heat here will keep breaking records as it has the past few years since 2000
