But oddly, here in New Mexico, it's rainy season, so I guess we're getting a bit of a reprieve from dry weather. Especially last night! Usually our storms last about 20 minutes or so, but this one went on and on for a couple hours -- pouring and storming. It was so cool.
Try as I might, I didn't manage to get any really good lightning pictures this time around -- mostly because the lightning seemed to be behind the clouds. So I'll share with you some sample shots from my front yard and front porch that I took during the storm, but don't expect to see any lightning striking portraits here.
I took these around 8:15pm (sunset was at 7:53pm here), Thursday evening.

|This is our New Mexico home.|
|This is all I saw when lightning would strike. It was behind the clouds.|
|Another angle I tried.|
|And, lightning behind the clouds again. At least I timed it well.|
