Sunrise this morning
Hubby woke me up at 4:40 a.m. today. Now, hubby isn't a morning person. He's quite the opposite. He'll stay up until midnight and then wake up at 9 a.m....Now, I AM a morning person, but I was snoring still asleep at 4:40, blistfully unaware of what was going on outside our hotel. A THUNDERSTORM! Yes! With lightning, rain, and thunder. So, of course, we both had to sit and watch it. BOOM! CRACK! FLASH! It went on for over an hour, then headed west toward the California border. And, we got some nice rain. So, I headed out with my camera as soon as it got light. Here are some pics of what I saw this morning. Don't you just love a nice, refreshing rain???? I'm not sure where we are headed today...maybe out to McDowell Mountain to see the old ruins there???
