Passing Summer Stormby Jim Gressinger on Aug. 07, 2012, under Uncategorized
Ms. Karen & I were in the pool yesterday late afternoon when we heard the first clap of thunder. A few minutes later, another bang, this time much closer. Our southern sky was turning very dark, very fast.
We headed for cover hoping this time WE would get the rain rather than just a passing storm that drops its load of precious water on some other neighborhood. (Yes, we know that sounds selfish, but all we ask for is our fair share.)
A few minutes later, we climbed our stairs to the viewing deck and watched it pass behind our neighbor's house just to our west. For the next four or five minutes, this is what we saw.
Well, at least some small portion of our beautiful Sonoran Desert received Heaven’s blessings. Maybe tomorrow it will be our turn … or yours.
