Friends and Kitties!
One of the things I love best about desert weather is monsoon season. Because your line of sight goes all the way to the horizon (or the mountains, whichever comes first) the opportunity to watch thunderstorms is just awesome. I snapped a few photos at work a couple of weeks ago on two different nights. They're phone photos so not the best quality, but I think you'll get the idea...
This first shot was taken from the roof of the ozone building at the plant directly adjacent to Lake Mead. The storm that's off in the distance is about 50 miles (80 km) away, over the Spring Mountains.
This one was taken the next night from the plant in Henderson. The rain has completely obscured The Strip and the Spring Mountains beyond, about 35 miles away. We had a real gully washer that evening at my house, over a third of an inch in thirty minutes...the water was roaring down the streets and according to Scott, the cats were under the beds!
The rain rarely lasts long though; it moved out in time for sunset.
Happy Saturday and Caturday!
