Best of GSV weather; the ominous, strange, and beautiful
« on: June 12, 2020, 06:49:25 PM »

I found this rainbow on I-10 east of Van Horn, TX, against a massive 2015 rainstorm. The sun coming from behind just makes it all better.

Any other great Street View weather captures?

Wow, that is magical. We do already have a thread for crazy things found in Street View, if you wanted to post this there as well.

Here's some snow falling in Santa Rosa, NM:

I have the GSV turned 180 because the snow gathered on the front of the camera lens.

Google managed to capture a huge thunderstorm moving across the Cascade Foothills southeast of Seattle back in May 2012:

I don't know why I always remember this particular GSV. Glad someone thought to create a topic for this kind of stuff.

This is some pretty interesting stuff, though, I think it warrants its own thread.

Flash flooding in Van Horn, TX on US-90 (presumably from the same storm the OP found). Very interesting how most of this thread has locations in west Texas and New Mexico. Is the weather over there unpredictable, or is Google just going over there at the times of year when thunderstorms are most likely to happen?
