The good ol' monsoon season continues on in New Mexico.
This morning, I headed off in The Beast (so I can listen to Rush Limbaugh as the Mustang's radio has a loose wire) to Lupton, Arizona to the Tee Pee Smoke Shop to pick up some cigars.
It was cloudy out and I noticed that water was flowing in arroyos, streams and the Rio Puerco River. They had been pretty dry for months.
After conducting my business at the Tee Pee, I headed back home.
Along the way, I noticed an enormous black cloud heading in the direction of Jamestown. I could see it from Gallup.

After getting off the freeway, I stopped and took the above photo of the cloud.
Within an hour, Jamestown was hit with lightning, thunder and rain.
Nothing like monsoon season in New Mexico!
