Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Beth! We had such fun that day!

oh, wow, it's so daunting
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was somewhat... but it was very localized and over with quickly!
I am getting a feeling of Deja vu grin
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I did, too! I can't believe we did that!

It's not the day to be out on the bike, I think. Very dramatic!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh no! That would NOT be good! smile

Well I am not going to say which I prefer. Both very good pictures.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: thanks, Chad! I suppose they're identical except the curve in the road!
It has been a long time since I have been in such open, wide, flat country with the horizon being so far in the distance.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I would miss it, I'm sure, having grown up in Wyoming. As much as the East Coast fascinates me and has such beauty - I almost feel claustrophobic there!
You and Frank had perfect placement to storm watch. You've captured this beautifully!

I understand now how flash floods can happen there. I did not even know why your drains existed on land.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We did! Thanks so much, Mary!

I'm not sure what you mean about the drains... do yo mean you didn't know why we need drains? Flash floods are amazing... part of the reason for them is not only these localized, intense downpours - but also that under the topsoil is either a thick layer of limestone, quartz or clay - that don't absorb anything at all.
Top picture is almost identical to Frank's except you've captured more of the light in the lower left. Excellent images, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I know! Oy! Don't know how we did this! He has more curve on the road... but this tells you that there wasn't much processing, if any, needed!! smile Thank you, Beverly!
It is ominous looking.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh, indeed! But it was quite localized and passed very quickly!
Looking at both shots of the approaching storm you must have been excited on the one hand and a bit pensive as to what would happen on the other. A very good picture, as is the lower one.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Brian! It was very localized and passed very quickly... the worst bit of driving for the day was the blizzard approaching Flagstaff. Comparatively - this was nothin'! smile
tunder and lighting Ellie... two nice compositions....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes, indeed! Thank you, Peter!
That's a wow!
The top one is exhibit-worthy.
