I wasn't going to stop because I was just so exhausted on my drive home from work tonight, but we never get rain - not never, but it's pretty unique so to get out of the car for pictures means getting wet because I'm not wearing protective clothing.

When I realized that I couldn't take my eyes off the clouds and rather than continue to drive badly, I pulled off onto a wide shoulder to see if I could catch a couple good images.

This is taken from inside the car because I was getting a bit wet. I can't believe that I never get tired of looking at our clouds and that they haven't become "old hat" to me. I hope they never do.
The clouds are to the west of my car and on the east I have this. I'm reminded of the Ladysmith Black Mombasa song, "Rain, rain, rain, beautiful rain." Only where you don't get rain, can you appreciate the sentiment.

I had planned to write on the past weekend, but I'm so happy that it rained, the weekend can wait another day.

We havent had rain here all summer but this time of year we usually get some. And it sneaks up on you in the form of gully washers... I left the window of my truck down when I came back from lunch today, bet you cant guess what happened about 2:30!
