This is an extremely rare sight where I live - clouds. I'm 3,500 feet up in the mountains 40 miles east of San Diego. Yesterday, for the first time in months, it actually rained. Not only that, it poured. For virtually the whole day, we experienced thunder showers. Not the drive-by variety that I'm used to on the east coast. These babies literally swirled around our mountain the entire day, dropping in for return visits.
Finally, as the sun was dipping into the horizon, I was able to get out for a walk. I shot this through my iPhone, on the street where I live, about a quarter mile from my house, looking down into the valley below.
