Or maybe it’s a rip in a tiny point in space-time? Or a terminator is heading to us from the future….and SkyNet misjudged the altitude? RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Blog Post Garum Blog Post Just Because Blog Post Tuesday Special 18 COMMENTS Or maybe just a nasty thunderstorm over Monument Valley? Cue up "Ghost Riders", please….. All three, surely. Or that. The Doors – Riders on the Storm Into this house we're born Into this world we're thrown Like a dog without a bone, an actor out on loan Riders on the storm There's a killer on the road His brain is squirmin' like a toad, (and so forth) That's a reminder of working a field as a kid, and seeing storm clouds all around me – with clear skies just overhead. Watching all the lightening dancing in the skies made me a bit nervous about being out in an open field. Frank Always the diplomat. Monsoon in Arizona is spectacular. We can see some astounding light shows to the East of here out over the plains. The "Homestead" is above 7500', and has completely clear view of the plains, and they can see even better. I've experienced some extreme weather in your area and further south in the San Juans as well. Ha! Always love the energy of a thunderstorm. Schedule it better and sell tickets. I know our climates are about as different as can be, but around here I'd say that's one of the days of the week that end with the suffix "day". Lightning doesn't mean rain, especially in the desert. Brush/forest fires, yes! Awesome picture. God's majesty, for sure. And the smell of the ozone. When I was stationed in Pensacola, I used to love to watch the lightning. There were days that you couldn't fly or even exercise because of a fear of lightning. I wasn't there long, but I loved the place in summer. Going down to Rosie O'Grady's for supper. Pretty women in Pensacola in summer, in town to pick up an officer from many points in the South. Especially a problem up at the White Wolf Mine where the lightning meets tall trees and causes a big old mess. "How great Thou art!" Comments are closed.
