Thursday's Weather


Around 3:30 Thursday afternoon, I was headed to Scottsdale for a hair appointment and I was noticing all the white puffy clouds in the sky.  When I got to the salon, I snapped a photo and thought to myself that I might get some more pretty cloud shots when I was done.


However, about 45 minutes later when I exited the salon, the sky was dark grey and by the time I got to my car, it was raining.  It rained very hard for about 30 to 45 minutes and there was a lot of wind to go with it.


When it stopped raining, there were rainbows.


Beautiful rainbows!
Perfect monsoon weather for here in the desert southwest.

A nice rainbow for surviving the rain blast. The clouds are fantastic in the first photo. They remind me of cotton balls, so fluffy.

It's like here with the sun and the rain, 4 season in one day.

Hope the rain did not ruin your newly coiffed hairdo!

All the desert critters were happy for the rainfall, I'm sure!

Big weather contrasts. How many times do we say to ourselves, "I don't have enough time now . . . I'll take the picture on the way back," and have exactly that happen to us?
