In nearby Prescott, it rained hard this morning, then came back in the late afternoon.  Good thing because that meant it didn't wash out the Hawaiian luau that was going on in downtown.  I'll have pictures of that tomorrow.

These pictures were taken this afternoon after the rains came back.

If you look closely at this second picture, you can see the rain coming down diagonally.

Meanwhile, when I got home I found it sprinkling lightly but nothing like the torrential downpour I drove through to get home.  The ferocious thunderstorms have slid by us for the most part.

But here's the cloud formation that brought that heavy rain.

So thanks to all of you who were concerned about us and offered to send us some of your rain.  We can still use it but I think the monsoon is going to take care of us for awhile.

I'm glad you got some rain - now it's OUR turn!

I'll cancel the rain delivery I was sending you way.

Beautiful, beautiful rain!

I watched storms all afternoon build in OK and move south towards us. They actually issued a severe thunderstorm warning for our area, but wouldn't you know it, it all fell apart right as it got to me. We barely got our street wet. ;(

Rain is good. We've had some everyday for a week. Hopefully it has brought us out of the drought.

Are you sure you don't live in Vietnam?

That's good news and I like the pictures a lot!
THe worst in Az is to feel the rain, to see the clouds and get nothing!

Those cloud formations are very dramatic looking.
We stayed home in PV all day and we got three bouts of very heavy rain at our place.
