Storm in The Desert

On occasion this time of year we get these big Thunder Bumpers. It makes me think of Kansas. Yeah, I miss The Sunflower State.

This storm looked like it had a lot of rain but out here, most of the rain does not reach the ground. It is the powerful wind pushing the sand and dirt. Visibility on the roads suffers because of the blowing sand.

This big puppy was to the East over North Edwards, Boron, Kramer Junction and Barstow at least.

    As we’ve traveled the country on our Air Force journey, my wife misses the storms of our native Kansas. She’s there now while I’m deployed and enjoying the summer.

You may fire when ready, Gridley
