    As Mitica100 mentioned, Phoenix had a huge line of thunderstorms move through last night. My house was just north of all the action, but I did manage to capture a few images.



    Then the rain! There was a HUGE bolt that hit and blew out the background, but you can clearly see the column of rain. Some areas received 1 inch in about 20 mins.



    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you! The bolts were rare, but the cloud to cloud lightning was constant! The pictures do not do it justice.

    Thanks Alex! I'm glad we didn't get hit with the 80 mph winds.

    Thank you Abraxas! It paid to get out of the backyard this time.

    Nice shots!

    That was the mother of all monsoon storms. On the way to work this morning, all the traffic lights were out and I saw a house bisected by a fallen tree.

    They are all good, but #4 is amazing. I actually prefer the effect and being able to see the column and cloud texture compared to the others.

    WOW at numbers 2 and 4! Looking at the last one, I can tell that it rained buckets on Charlie's house, but Ken, Steve and Margo didn't see any water :)
