The rumbling of thunder yesterday evening brought me out to view the sky.

It looked like some Labor Day weekend barbecues were about to be ruined.

The ominous clouds moved around the sky as we sat and watched but that distant rainfall stayed distant.

My friend Phil was out touring the countryside (and a stop for pork sliders and beer!) but returned home to Chino Valley to find a neighborhood covered in hail stones.

He said Sedona also got hail.

But here in the friendly confines of Prescott Valley the precipitation just hopped past  and no hail fell to bug us.

We were going to walk to a pub for a beer this afternoon but our sky was looking like that so we didn't and there still hasn't been any rain! ;-(

It has been pissing down here all day.

Excellent! Unless you needed the rain.

Good pictures. I like to watch a storm move in, but I don't like the loss of my (satellite) internet service when it gets here.

Dramatic sky shots.

It definitely looks like a dramatic storm somewhere! My sister-in-law, who lives in South Dakota, recently got fist-sized hail. It damaged her house and car and she's having to deal with insurance companies. I don't envy her at all.

Quite brooding.

We've had unsettled weather over the weekend. Today's been dry.
