More clouds and a little rain


I left my house Sunday evening around 6:30 to meet some friends for dinner and I discovered some gorgeous clouds building up all around me.  I took this photo just after I left my house.


This was the view from the restaurant parking lot looking east.  Those dark clouds on the horizon turned into some thunder storms that scattered some rain throughout the valley.  I got some where I live but I'm betting other places got even more than the small bit that hit central Phoenix.  When I was driving home, the sky was alive with lightening in every direction and when I woke up at 2:00 AM, I noticed the lightening was still going on and still working in all directions.  It was quite a sky show.
