Mountain thunderstorm~SkyWatch Friday~081911

The afternoon thunderstorms here up on the Mogollon Rim are different from those in the desert.  First, the clouds develop.  Then, a wind comes up.  The temperature drops.  They seem to move in up here every afternoon (at least for the 5 days we've been here).  One morning, I looked out to see a cloudless sky and by afternoon, it was thundering away and raining!  Yes, that does happen in the desert, but we all notice a remarkable change in the humidity there.  I don't notice that up here on the rim.  Everything around the cabin here is nice and green from all the August monsoons.  We did watch the news last night and there were thunderstorms all over eastern Arizona and western New Mexico.  We are enjoying our time up here, but, alas, we head home tomorrow!  SkyWatch Friday for August 19, 2011.

  2. It's always hard to leave a place we love as our holidays end draws near. Glad to hear the desert is receiving much needed rain.
