A Few Storm Photos
Last Wednesday we had some tremendous storms here in the Phoenix area. I left work about 15 minutes early because of the warning and made it home in plenty of time for the fireworks to begin. Now it hasn't stormed here in a long time and it doesn't do it very often even in the monsoon season. But when it does, it REALLY storms. We had winds about 35-50 mph and in our area we had hail as big as golf balls. Sherrie's car is parked outside and we were worried about what kind of damage it was taking but God blessed us in that there wasn't a scratch on it. Our guess is that the hail was deflected by the tree next door and the overhang of our roof. Other than a lot of leaves on it, it was fine. The one picture is of the hail in the backyard. The next is the view out our front door. The rain was just gushing off the roof into the front stoop. But the neatest thing we saw was an absolutely perfect rainbow when it was all over. I mean it was a perfect arch in deep, vibrant colors. I couldn't get a picture of the whole thing with my camera so I am only showing a part of it in this picture. But it was gorgeous! The weather has been relatively cool here since then and it feels like fall is right around the corner.
