Summer Monsoon.

Dear Sky-Watchers,

The word monsoon is as lovely to say as it is to see in the dramatic, dark and wide skies associated with our own ersatz monsoon weather.  I say ersatz, because the weather science folks are divided as to whether our regional incomplete wind reversal truly counts as a monsoon.  See some of the details of the debate here, and here.  I offer the word, then, and this image, for pure enjoyment, and we will leave precision out of it for today.
