Monsoon Thunderclouds
Originally uploaded by khyri
The storm's been building all evening. I took a few photos from our front porch earlier - click through to Flickr to see the more dramatic ones. Once the sun went down, the thunder and lightning started in earnest, and we had a power interruption at about 9:00 p.m.

Less than an hour later, the storm is right overhead, and the rain has begun. It's a good thing I don't need to go anywhere until Monday morning, as I have a feeling the floods are on their way. Each clap of thunder can be felt as well as heard - the whole house shakes.

I'm sleeping with the blinds open tonight. I love this.

Nothing like the thunder and lightning as it advances ahead of the summer storms.

It sounds like there might be a repeat storm tonight. I'm going to try again to capture a lightning strike - someone in the Tucson Flickr group was lucky enough to take this amazing photo during the same storm last night.

No lightning after all last night - patience, girl! I'll get there yet. Keeping an eye on the radar...

Summer storms are brilliant, as long as you are safe and dry inside, and the floods don't hit!!
