Monsoon storm in Tucson August 5, 2012

Yesterday's monsoon storms were unexpected (there was only a 30% chance in the forecast), produced a TON of lightning and thunder, and a pretty heavy downpour.  The storms knocked out power for more than 12,000 Tucson Electric Power customers.  Fortunately, we weren't one of them.

I took some photos and I think they came out kind of cool looking.

You be the judge.

This flipped over chair was the extent of the storm damage at my apartment.
Poor thing.
