Cool Cloudy Colorado

We found the monsoons
In Colorado, driving along the highway
Suddenly dark clouds appeared
Light sprinkles began falling, followed
By urgent drops of rain like hail
Beating against the windshield
Temperatures outside dropped

Would the heavy drops turn to pellets
And damage the window of our car?
Not this time, soon the rain stopped
As quickly as it had started, leaving
An immaculately clean windshield
And two relieved passengers inside


  1. WOW!! Are all the pix taken through the front windshield?? I really like the one with the rain on it.

    Are you in Colorado on your way home??

    I don't know why it'll feel so good to have you back in Utah.. but,it really will!!

  2. just the first photo is through the windshield...lin

  3. Glad that you didn't have a hail storm Lin..What pretty scenery. I guess we will be able to see some if we get out to OK to see our daughter...

  4. Don't you love the west's summer thunderstorms? You can drive in and out of a serious deluge in an hour or two. I drove through one Monday, and enjoyed another gentle one here at home yesterday. I love the sights and sounds of a rainstorm.

    Nice pictures too.

  5. Good to have someone there to be scared with in that bad weather!
    I'll bet you'll be saying, 'There's no place like home!'

  6. You've got some fabulous Sky Watch shots here, Lin. I'm glad you made it home safely. Have a nice rest.

  7. Gorgeous pictures. You have an amazing blog.

  8. These pictures are beautiful!
