We are in the high desert of Southern California, and have been watching and waiting for possible rain. The remnants of a tropical storm from Mexico have been rolling north & has been dropping a lot of rain on the way . There has been flooding from San Diego rural areas to near Palm Springs & surrounding areas. We are 'up the mountain' on Hwy 62, aka 29 Palms Highway. We live at the top of the grade at the west end of town overlooking Yucca Valley & have great views of the storms when they do arrive. We also enjoy the lightning shows in the surrounding areas for miles in the distance. We watched the storm clouds rolling in today & I took pics of the clouds slowing covering our town. The view is always interesting when clouds arrive & I hope that you can see the actual line that forms over the town. I have a very short video at the end of the photos which shows the clouds completely covering town. There is also a view of 'burning coals' appearance on a couple of our surrounding mountains. This is made by the sun sneaking through the clouds & shining on the mountains. Very cool I think. We had a few sprinkles so far but are still cloudy & hoping for rain tonight & in the next couple of days. We could sure use it!!
