Waking up to the sound of raindrops on my window was a pleasant surprise on Tuesday. It was also a treat to see the downpour from my office building’s windows that afternoon. The sun made an appearance for a few hours before sunset storms put on a show for us as we watched from Dreamy Draw Recreation Area.
A rainbow was auspicious start to the hike.
We could see the storm over the West Valley just before sunset.
The sky proceeded to get more and more beautiful.
Storm watching/chasing is one of Graham’s favorite things to do.
Best of all, the temperature was in the 80s with a breeze that picked up as the storm started building again over central Phoenix.
Here’s hoping we get more storms this week!
