I love summer storms in the desert. You can actually smell the earth and it's such a wonderful aroma. The clouds are amazing - huge thunderheads; and yes the lightening flashed and the thunder shook all the windows and the rain came down in sheets!! In the last while the sun is peeking behind some more white fluffy clouds and there will probably be more showers but for now it is very quiet and HUMID. Love it - love it - love it.
