Amazing Storm & Crazy Sunset Last Night

January 25, 2017
   Heading home from work last night I caught this crazy storm brewing to the north of us. Pulled over and grabbed my iPhone. Very dramatic lighting:

North Spur Cross in Cave Creek, looking East towards Continental Mountain.

Amazing lighting, looking northeast from Spur Cross and Cahava Ranch Road.

This is just west of Spur Cross looking north:

Eye in the sky as seen through the goalposts of Cactusland.

I got home and started putting my stuff away to get ready for dinner. About 30 minutes later, Kathy was in the kitchen and she said, "Come here, you are not going to believe this." I took one look out the window and ran outside to see this:

Crazy amazing burning sunset clouds to the north of us!

Snow clouds (you know, those whispy floating kind) were drooping down over Continental Mountain and were being lit up by the sunset, which is off to the left—West). And this was the view to the east:

Running buffalo sunset clouds over Ratcliff Ridge!

It was a light show that refused to die. I tried to watch the news, but kept looking out the window and them time and again running out to the back patio to catch more views.

Sunset Redux!
