4th of July

Two years ago my mom and I drove to Phoenix, Az. I was moving – my car was packed full of boxes, my dog and kitty cat. We were driving through New Mexico the evening of July 4. There was a storm ahead of us.

I love desert storms – even at night. The storms can be seen for miles. During the day, you can see sheets of rain off in the distance like curtains. Nighttime storms are equally as interesting. Lightening flashes miles ahead and you know you are heading into
a tempest.

That night as we drove through the darkness, a town miles in front of us was celebrating the 4th of July with fireworks. High above a lightening storm erupted. The once impressive fireworks display looked like kid’s toys in comparison to the vast natural light show. The fireworks continued with the lightening far overhead dwarfing the man-made explosions. It was beautiful and amazing.
