I was an hour into a movie when the storm hit. it knockd out satellite so I turnd off the tv & went out to the back portal. I was there less than 30 seconds when a lightning bolt struck so close to the house that the concrete beneath me shook & there was a burnt smell in the wet air. I dashd inside tintinabulous aftershocks surrounding my whole body. the rain became torrential flooding my patio. then I cd hear the roar. Arroyo Chamisa once more became a river.
after an hour of hard rain we're in a lull. but I can still hear my temporary river.
