I remember the first picture when you guys wouldn't let me have a garbage bag to keep myself dry.  Tom H and Boulderdash don't respect their elders when it comes to rain and hail.  I got soaked to the bone while I took their picture.  Those squalls come up fast in the Prescott area.   

Ever get caught in a lightning/hail storm in the middle of a lake?  Carbon fiber fishing rods don't help either.    :th_rain-umbrella:

No they don't! My cousin got hit that way. Out fishing when he should have been headed to shore.

The clouds are building in the north against the Bradshaws. It is coming soon. Hopefully in a day or so. :th_rain-umbrella:

OT do you remember when we got stuck in one? I remember hugging the side of a big rock wall in the wash, trying to stay downwind...and the whole time your son rode it out in the yota! Apparently he was the smarter of us that day. :25r30wi:

Yeah, I remember so well.  Nowhere to go but hug that sheer rock wall looking at each other while getting rain trickling down your back.  Some fun but at least we got a couple that day.  Memories...………………….

LOL....I was just 5 min. slower than you two about heading out. Just got out to the front of the YOTO and it DUMPED!!!!. Threw the detector in and I followed and sat there for about 10 mins. thinking "those poor SOBs are getting soaked" .Rained so hard the YOTO leaked a little on me :)..Ha Ha...Good memories :yesss:

   Yes I have. Spent our last day together with a friend I called my "big brother" on woods canyon lake. Out on a floating lightning rod in the middle of the "lake" (pond is more like it...). Strikes all around us. Exciting for sure.

The first pic was taken up White Spar Rd. outside of Prescott, and the last was at Willow Springs Lake on the rim.  Both were in hail and lightning and very intense.  Wonderful experiences when all comes out well.  :th_rain-umbrella:
