The Incredible Arizona Monsoon of 2014

I can honestly say that it was the summer clouds that drew first to Arizona. Growing up in California, we had some nice clouds but nothing like the power and size of a summer desert cloud.

Friend John P. forwarded this link to me - an amazing 7 minute video by Bryan Snider that captures the power and beauty of the just concluded Arizona monsoon. Check it out here. You will be amazed!

In his own words:

"It was incredible, epic, amazing," said Snider, a founding member of Arizona Storm Chasers who has followed storms in Arizona and the Midwest for about a decade. "There are so many ways to describe it."

He drove 14,000 miles this season following monsoon storms across the state. The unique features of each storm — such as dust, lightning and shelf clouds — were some of the best of his career, he said. 

"You'll see some amazing stuff out here," said Snider, who takes photos and creates time-lapse videos.
