Thunderstorm Approaching

A couple of years ago my husband and I were remote camping in the Oregon Badlands. We were reading a bit in the afternoon, when clouds fairly quickly started filling up the sky. They were big clouds, and we took pictures of them because they were quite spectacular (this painting is from those pictures). We were feeling a little suspicious of these lovely clouds, when suddenly it started POURING down rain, and the wind blew SO HARD that we each grabbed a pole of our canopy, unwilling to let it blow away, as the horizontal rain soaked us and all our stuff. It lasted about 15 minutes, stopped as suddenly, and we spent the next few hours drying everything out. Below is a calm scene from that evening in the same spot.
