Skywatch Friday Far Away Thunder

ImageLate July thunderhead forming over the San Bernardino mountains. The result was hot sticky air in the valley below and fortunately that was all that resulted. Lightening strikes in the dry mountain brush are always a danger when Summer storms form but produce no rain. So far,so good with 3 more months of Fire season to go we have been very lucky this year in Southern California.

  1. Huge and menacing clouds! I’m glad they did no harm. May you all stay fire free all summer.

  2. Sure looks like a storm building!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. Last Sunday night/early Monday morning, we too had a thunderstorm here in the Sierra Nevada mountains (east of Sacramento in the foothills). It rained heavily, which is very unusual for us in El Dorado County in July. I noticed the humidity on Monday, too. You got some great shots of the thunder heads! I grew up in San Bernardino (1948-59) and Rialto (1959-1968)…Eisenhower High School, class of ’66!. But I’ve lived here in El Dorado County for almost 34 years.

  4. Great shot of the thunderhead. Living in the Methow Valley in north central Washington, lightning caused fires are very much a concern. I monitor them every day. Although I enjoy the storms, I do not like the inevitable fires they bring

  5. Special clouds you’ve captured here :0) Lovely :0)

    Better to have “fire” in the clouds than fire on the ground!
