    You must be on the SE side? We get hardly any rain in the NW.

    The water in your second pool is looking a little cloudy....looks like you need to SLAM it.

    Man, I bet that water beads up and just run like a river everywhere. I know it does here, but we've gotten a little break this week with some slow drizzle. Maybe more today...

    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Yeah, the pond didn't even last until I got home from work. It's been raining just about every day here (northwest side also jb, cortaro/silverbell area). Thundering now...

    If Tucson is getting weather like that, the Zombie Apocalypse cannot be far behind.

    Re: Two pools, one yard

    We must be too close to the Mtn and the rain just skips over us ... just south of Oro Valley. Certainly not nearly as much rain as the SE gets.

    From what I have seen ... seems like a pretty dry monsoon so far. Although I work in a windowless building
