The following chart shows precipitation for 2006 - we missed January, but at 19.74 inches for the year, we are close to "normal" precipitation of 20 Inches. The wettest monsoon since 1955 occured during July, August, and September this year. As you can see, the total rainfall for those three months was 16.05 inches. That is a lot of rain! Arizona has had its share of extreme weather. Winston can tell you about living in Prescott during the winter of 1967-68. Locals in Paradise tell stories of finding deer skeletons under juniper trees where they had died
