Monsoon season is upon us and here are some handy tips to help prepare. The season is officially from June 15 until September 30, however, these dates are not always exact. It is important to start preparing before the storm since Monsoon winds and rain travel very quickly. The average wind velocity is around 30 mph and dust height may exceed 3000 feet! Flash flooding is common during these storms so be prepared on the road and ensure your yard is properly landscaped. Queen Creek typically sees about 10.1 inches of rain each year with August being the wettest and June the driest. This equates to about 29 rainy days a year. On a positive note, Queen Creek averages 301 sunny days per year! I am local in Queen Creek, and if you are looking at buying or selling I would love to have a conversation about our market, city, and develop a plan.
