Summer Storm

Monday, August 4, 2008

Living in the desert has it's joys and a summer thunderstorm is one of them. Our skies are normally void of clouds but this time of year we get the "monsoons" that come up from the south and show off their big thunderheads. The best part is the lightening. Today we were lucky enough to get some rain and a few displays of lightening. But I was at the other end of the valley that La Quinta calls home and missed all the fun. I could see the action in the distance and by the time I got home all that was left was wet streets. The weather is spotty here and it can be sunny at one end of the valley and rainy at the other.
