Summer Storm Season 2014…
Great shots. We had some mid-afternoon pop-up storms yesterday but they’d all collapsed by the time I got home for the camera gear.
I’m extremely fortunate in that I work from home, so I can watch the radar at intervals until 3PM local time and decide whether to go out or not. Most of our storms peak between 4 and 6PM, so I’ve got a little bit of time to run out during the week.
Saturday afternoon down south of Amado, Arizona, looking east across Highway 19 between Tucson and Nogales:
9/6/2014, a bit east of Mesa, AZ, on US Route 60:
Didn’t catch any lightning, but ironically caught a rainbow over the Goldwater Air Force Range. Zero cell coverage out there, but had a chat via 2 meter on a repeater in the White Tank Mountains with a guy in Phoenix, and a guy in Flagstaff (RimLink).
I had to bug out before I got anything better. 50+ MPH winds. Rainfall at 2.27″/hr. It got MESSY. Debris in roads. Traffic barricades blown over.
