Here's the view to the northeast from my driveway this afternoon.

This is typical of what you'll see during our monsoon season. The real question is whether the clouds will fall down the hill into the valley to bless us with rain, or if they will just hang there all evening.

Here's a zoomed photo of the same cloud formation.

Sometimes, we'll have these same clouds, but the monsoon storms will come in from the south. It's really not something you can predict. We've all heard the joke about the weather. If you don't like it, wait ten minutes. That's not far from the truth during the afternoons in monsoon season. From that storm last night, we got about 1/16" of rain. Not much, but it came down in a fairly short time.

We have a chance of rain again tonight. I took the above photos a good 30 minutes ago. I can see clouds out the back door now, so I think the chances are pretty good for rain.
