They held off until August but, the monsoon storms have finally arrived. We've had wind and rain almost every evening this week. The photo above was taken looking west from my house. On this particular night we had some great color in the sky.
We also had a bigger storm approaching from the north. The sky over the mountain looked dark and there were flashes of distant lightening that would make the edges of the mountain light up. I tried to catch one of those flashes but no luck.
The next night we had some really blustery weather. Again, this is a view to the west with a decidedly dark and stormy sky heading this way. We got quite a lot of rain from this one. At times it came down so hard that they halted incoming flights at the airport. Hopefully, there is more rain to come. We sure do need it.
