Twenty minutes in the life of a summer monsoon storm.
The first summer I lived in Tucson this one of the first monsoon rain storm I was able to track as it moved around the Tucson Valley.
It started at the northeast side of my home between the Catalina and Rincon Mountains.
Traveling south towards the Santa Rita Mountains.
Moving very fast blocking out all the sky east of me but I was standing under a blue sky filled with sunlight and no wind.
The storm, now south of me, veered west, now traveling west along 22nd street (about 20 minutes from my home) taking out several street of telephone/electric poles and filling the streets with water.
Looking up into the storm clouds.
The storm changed path again, now heading north on the west side of my home heading back toward the Catalina Mountains and the flat lands leading towards Phoenix.
Making this a very unusual "U" shaped path this storm followed.
The color change was just the way the sun illuminated the fast moving storm winds filled with dust and rain.
