After a tense early summer of wildfires and grass-crisping heat, the “monsoons” have rolled in. Kirstin here, and I was down at the ranch over the weekend. Right after Sunday dinner, this storm rolled in from the north.
We love being perched up here on our cliff, especially when we get to watch the notoriously tempestuous Colorado weather paint the sky with drama. Sunset storms are always the best because they are so dramatically lit.
This time of year we get some highly irregular and unreliable afternoon showers. It’s not uncommon to watch a clouds like those above soar around us, completely missing the ranch while they drench our neighbors a quarter mile away.
