Summer Storms

July 10th, 2010 by tucsonbb

We had our first roll of summer thunder this afternoon marking the beginning of the summer storm season.  Morning is usually quiet with the pneumaafternoon bringing storm clouds, high winds, and then about 1/2 hour of rain– if we’re lucky.  Sometimes the storm stops with only the wind and lightning.

The clouds break open and sometimes we get the most striking sunsets imaginable.  This is what I saw as I took my evening walk last evening around 7:30 at Hacienda del Desierto Bed & Breakfast in the lovely Sonoran desert.
