Our thunderheads~





I awoke early this morning to a morning sky full of clouds.  It was a beautiful sunrise...pinks, oranges in the clouds...ahhhhhh....OUR monsoon season has finally arrived!!!  And, by noon, they were developing over our local mountains.  We have rain(!) forecast for the next two days ...(possibly...).  It's always a guess here in our desert.  Our monsoon storms come from the south, up over the Santa Rosa mountains from Mexico.  If I look out and see clouds over those mountains, and they are thunderheads, I'm pretty sure a summer storm is on its way.  And, that is happening this afternoon!  FINALLY!!!
