SkyWatch Friday- Desert Showers







I was driving home from the Phoenix area, after visiting my daughter and grandkids and just as I hit the Tucson area I noticed this raincloud off the interstate. I had to pull over and capture it for SkyWatch Friday.

We've had a good deal of rain here. Notice the tall green grass in the forefront of the top picture- you will only see green like that in the desert during the monsoon season.

You should have been a fly on the wall when I opened up this post - I went "Oh!!" right out loud, woke up the cats, and sat right up in my chair. What an incredibly beautiful storm capture. The rain and the thunder cell above - amazing. Okay, now the cats want lunch...
