Arizona thunderheads~SkyWatch Friday~072911

Looking north from Cave Creek, we saw these thunderheads developing one afternoon.  By early evening, the thunderstorm had rolled closer and we could see lightning and occasionally heard thunder.  We love going to Arizona during the monsoon season.  We didn't have any thunderstorms here in our desert last summer and this one isn't shaping up to be much of a monsoon season either.  SkyWatch Friday for July 29, 2011.

I like to watch thunderheads rolling in, and to wager with myself: Will they dump a load of rain or won't they?


When planets plummet
And comets careen,
It’s the strangest sight
You ever have seen.

When drunk stars stagger
And comets collide,
It’s time to look up
As you go outside

To stare at the sky
Where the strangest sight
Is the moon-faced thing
That you see at night.
