Had some awesome storms this afternoon – rain two days in a row is practically an AZ miracle! I was sitting outside reading on the iPad because I was too cold in the house (Kevin is not shy about turning down the a/c). I heard the wind start howling and looked at the sky. I’ve never seen clouds moving so fast. Big, black clouds, moving over the mountains. The temp instantly dropped and the rain started coming down harder than the light sprinkle I had been enjoying. Kevin heard the wind and came outside and the kids followed. There was laughter, shrieking and jumping for joy, (and bike riding – that’s Kevin in the red in the center of the photo!) while they played in the downpour – right up until the enormous bolt of lightning and almost simultaneous thunder scared the crap out of all of us!
