Yes, some of the storms so far this year have really been packing a punch!

Had another storm come through last night with rain and lightning. I was watching it approach from the south when it was behind the Huachuca Mountains and it was awesome

That was the worst storm Ive ever seen in my life, and this is coming from an ex-Midwesterner. The wind, rain, lightning, etc, was on an apocalyptic level. Ive never seen rain so thick that I couldn't see through it. At times it was literally hurricane force with sheets of rain so thick it reminded me of a whiteout blizzard you'd see up near Amarillo, TX.

The Monsoon has been generating microburst after microburst this season.

Another crazy storm tonight. Thunder so loud it made my house shake/vibrate a bit. Lightning has been crazy too, and we've been issued a flash flood warning until 2:30 am. Crazy! Just hope I don't find my neighbor's trampoline in my backyard tomorrow since I heard something whack the wall in the backyard lol.

Last night was a bit crazy up here too. Wind started up suddenly. Then the power went out. Lightning started going off including one nice and close . Rain, little hail maybe. Power came back after about a half hour. More rain distant lightning and thunder. Maybe a half hour after power restored, internet went down. Another half hour later the power went off again for about three minutes.

Then I went to bed.

And even more so. Nothing last night, just a distant rumble. I was going to go camping, but my 12v fridge was crapping. Should have gone today, but . . .

Anyways . . .
