Not really that fixated on grammar, but it's fun pretending. Find the errors in this sentence: I texed him last night to advice him, "Its time to reign in the cat, its to full of it's self.'

Rain in the desert as the sun shines

Rate: 15 Flag
These were taken about mid-afternoon today, in no longer than a 30-minute time frame.  They are in sequence.  Depending on where I pointed my camera, I could see beautiful blue sky, brilliant sun, clouds threatening to rupture at any moment, and at one point, rain.
 
David, a family friend, was mowing and weed-whacking the lawn the entire time, even when it briefly rained.
 
I will return to these photos during the inferno known as July and August, and will remember why I moved here.

Does your neck hurt from looking up?
Ha! When you live in West Mesa, you really don't want to look at anything eye level. Thanks for dropping by.
Hah! Those photos had my imagination going nuts building images from the clouds!!

Beautiful indeed!

glad it was pretty over your way, cindyross. we sent those clouds east, you know, after the hail and wild windstorm we had here for 48 hours. looks like you got the almost-gentle tail end of it. nice pics.
That looks like my place today. Amazing clouds. I will remember them in the scorching summer too when clouds and puddles are rare. The storms here in southern California are awesome.
Thanks, weather lovers! It never occurred to me that this came our way from California. I should go over to weather.com more often. Around here, the forecast is nearly always "hot" "hotter" and "straight from Hell," so I seldom bother to check the weather reports.
Almost like a symphony those clouds there.

I LOVE clouds! They have always been my love and these are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
Really cool pictures. ~r
Oooooo baby. Sky porn. That was so good for me. Thank you, sugar!
Looked a little ominous there in a couple of frames. Dramatic photos.
Love these, and for an Arizonian, these cloud formations and the rain must be special! I usually ask for the window seat when I fly so I can enjoy the clouds -- through, among, over, under.
And we had a tornado here in the mountains in our tiny town -- that NEVER happens. What weird weather -- summer is not going to be any fun methinks.
I do remember these clouds as being beautiful when I lived there. Great photos./r
Awesome skyscapes! One time on the Coloraod Plateau north of where you are I saw rain falling but evaporating before it hit the ground. It's strange that someone thought building cities like Phoenix in an arid, waterless desert was a good idea.
Ooops, that's Colorado, not "Coloraod." Not the state of Colorado but the Colorado Plateau, that upsweep of redock desert containing the Grand Canyon and so forth. Stoopid @#&%in' typos!
And that's supposed to be redrock, not "redock." Gah, I need more caffeine...
(Now I totally have that Joni Mitchell song in my head.) Beautiful photos, nicely captured! I like it best when the sky gets that dark deep shade of right-before-the-storm blue-grey.
