As most of you know we’ve been getting a lot of rain storms here in the mountains of Northern New Mexico lately. We need the rain so they are always a blessing. Often, I drop whatever I am doing to watch the storms approach. My friend, Kim (see previous post A Very Mini Artist’s Colony), was over when this storm headed our way.
We stepped out on the deck to watch and I turned on the video function of my camera to try to capture something of this storm for you all. It was still quite a ways out there (I can’t be outside once the storm is overhead since, by then, it is always raining and also VERY unsafe). So you’ll only get a small sense of what these storms are like. The camera didn’t pick up the sound of the thunder very well and Kim and I were talking through it, but I still wanted to leave you with the original sound.
The storms have been amazingly powerful and I will continue to try to capture a truer sense of them for you. But in the meantime, here is one New Mexico storm I can share with you.
Love to you all,
