    New Mexico Rain Storm


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     amandammason was on highway 285 near Carlsbad, New Mexico, when she took a photo of steam rising from the ground after a storm on May 23. She says the steam was coming off a field that was covered in hail. Since New Mexico has been under a severe drought, she says this rain and hail was much needed. 'There were many other people stopped on the other side of the roadway taking photos. The fact that rain has been such a rarity over the last couple of years has people quite excited,’ she said.
