About once each summer, a tropical storm will blow north from Mexico to Southern California. When it does, we get really hot temperatures, humidity (which is uncommon in our desert-like climate), and once in a great while, rain.
I know a lot of you get storms frequently in the summer, but we don't. It's a big deal when any type of storm comes our way. This week, we've seen temperatures over 100F/38C every day. Some areas of Southern California have also seen thunder storms, rain, etc.
So far, here in Orange County, we haven't had any rain but this was the view from my backyard yesterday afternoon.
A thunder cloud!
Are you laughing at me?
You probably are but, trust me, a thunder cloud is very unusual for The OC.
I thought the clouds were very majestic and powerful looking, even though they failed to deliver any rain.
A little while later I took a closer shot as the cloud changed shape.
Did you look closely?
How old am I?
