Waterfalls and Flooded Streets


Yesterday morning we had a big storm hit the area with rain coming down by the bucket loads.  I happened to be at Julie's house at the time so I got to see some phantom waterfalls coming off of the mountain behind Julie's house.  You might have to look close to see it in this photo.  There was a lot of water in the air when I took the photo.


Looking north off the patio I could see that we were firmly packed inside a cloud.  The view was completely gone.


An hour later it was still wet outside but the cloud was gone and once again I could see across to the other mountain.  Sitting on the side of a mountain is a good place to watch all the storm action.

Very cool series of shots. I'll be the rain helped cool the temperature, too! I do remember those storms that would fill the bayous and gullies and people would try to drive through them and some would drown.

That was a wild storm. We really needed the rain.

It looks refreshing! We had a bad storm last night that caused some damage in Chino Valley and some street flooding.

It looks like a deluge. We could use some of that rain here.

Its quite scary sometimes, to see the force of nature in all its power like this!

We've visited Phoenix several times but I have never seen it rain. It must disrupt the whole balance of the area.
