Alligator Lizard In The Air

June 27, 2015  •  16 Comments

1:13 PM, Saturday, June 27th. An alligator lizard formed in the air over the Sandias. Wind was still and the temperature was in the low 90's.


2:44 PM, Saturday, June 27th. Clouds continue float over from the northeast. Wind was still and the temperature remained in the low 90's.


4:24 PM,  Saturday, June 27th. Thunderheads building up over the Sandias. Light breeze and the temperature still in the low 90's.


6:47 PM, Saturday, June 27th. A thunderstorm moved in with strong winds blowing dust and cold, horizontal rain that finally drove us inside. The temperature dropped from 89º F (31.67º C) to 63º F (17.22º C) in minutes.


7:41 PM, Saturday, June 27th. We normally have golden light and long shadows, as the setting sun prepares to turn the Sandias pink at this time of day, but the storm turned the light to dusk and dropped 2/10 of an inch of rain in 45 minutes.

Hi Harry! Finally warming up over there. 35º C would feel really hot in your part of the world I would think. It's dry here, so while 35 is hot it's not miserably hot. I remember being in Ravenna, Italy with temperatures of 40º C and humidity around 98% and we could hardly move.
