Rain.

Pouring, pounding, explosive rain. In the middle of the f&$#ing desert. It's very surreal.

And desert lightning is like NOTHING you have ever seen. My gods.

Sounds like Monsoon Season in Phoenix, but that's not until about October...
Where are you?
And are you getting pics of the lightning?

My aunt had a house in the desert. When the storm was far away ::G:: we'd sit up on the roof to watch the lightning.

Tucson is known for its lighting and thunderstorms. What you are witnessing is a desert thunderstorm..

I suggest taking the time to feel the relief the earth feels. As you bare witness to the deserts desperate need for moisture being satiated, the cooling temperatures, not to mention the light show. Professional photographers have come here for years to get some of the most notable photos of lighting published.

Sometimes, during the monsoons... the thunder shares the very room with your.. your walls shake.. your windows rattle.. the room reverberates for not just a second but seconds and nearly minutes!

Being in the desert when nature offers such succor is to watch one of the most beautiful dances.. and the Sonoran desert offers it like no other.. I am glad you have the chance to witness this..

Thank you for the reminder of home.

The smell of the air right after the rain is just about this side of heaven.
