Although deserts of the Southwest aren’t known, in particular, for their rain, we do get some spectacular rainstorms.
We only received a few light sprinkles from Thursday night’s storm. It passed several miles to the East of us, allowing me to capture this picture.
Last night’s storm, however, was of a different nature. Not only did it pass directly over us, but it was accompanied by intensely brilliant flashes of lighting and violent explosions of thunder which continued to roll and rumble for minutes at a time.
