Yesterday, Jess and I went down to Denny's for a snack or an early dinner. As we were driving down to the Flying J, we noticed that it wouldn't be long before the next thunderstorm would arrive.
Sure enough, no sooner than we got back home, the storm started with downpours and lightning show. Some were directly over the house and gave it a little shaking. This lasted for a few hours. We got a good soaking out of this storm. We got back home just in time. Note the storm clouds in the photo above.
This morning, while looking through the National Weather Service website, I saw this map:
It looks strange that the green area of the southwest follows straight along the borders of Arizona, Utah Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. It is probably a reporting glitch or something.
More thunderstorm activity in the Gallup, New Mexico is expected today.
