Storm photos show stark beauty, property damage

A week after storms began rolling across the Southwest, dumping as much as a foot of water in some locations, pushing streams—some of which had been no more than a trickle or completely dry for several years—out of their banks, forecasters are calling for more rain as farmers wait to get into fields to cut hay, finish planting or to pull out equipment that’s been mired in the mud for more than a week.

Across the region, farmers may be a tad inconvenienced—some more than others—but the overall mood seems to be hopeful as soil moisture going into summer is the best it’s been in years.

A few photographs that came in this week show more of the storms’ aftermath. Farmer Steven Chapman, Lorenzo, Texas, sent in some stunning storm photos.
