Stormy Skies

We’ve been having spectacular skies at night the past week. We actually got some rain Tuesday night. From the resulting small ponds on the roadways we learned that San Carlos has no storm drainage system. This doesn’t seem to be a big deal since you can usually drive around them. It makes me wonder what it will be like if we get hit by a hurricane. Time will surely tell.

Last night we hooked up the lightning strike detector to my camera, and let it do its thing. These are some of the shots it took. Notice the reflection of the full moon on the sea in a few of them. This storm was between here and Hermosillo so it was pretty far away. We didn’t see many lightning bolts, but hidden lightning lit up the clouds magnificently. Now that’s entertainment!
