Rat tail cactus at dusk as monsoon clouds gather

We have had lots of monsoon clouds and a little rain this last week. Even without the rain the clouds are a wonderful change from the hot hot sun.
My rat-tail cactus is changing once again. The tips of almost every long tail are splitting out now into three or four tails. It may be because they got bumped quite a bit when I tried repositioning it so it didn't attack everyone who walked up to the front door.

I heard them talking about the desert monsoon on CNN this morning - but the photo wasn't nearly as nice as this!

We've been having very strange weather lately... sunny mornings with little rainstorms every once in a while, then more blasting sun... about half my plants have spots of sun scald because of it. Very annoying... Beautiful pic.
