They happen every year during the monsoon...
Ahhh, I miss the monsoon!
I also lived in the Phoenix area for more than 30 years before moving to CA for the last 10 or so. While this one seems to be a little bit larger than most, they are so common there. There are at least a couple of these every summer during the monsoon season. I remember watching these as a kid coming toward the neighborhood when you would be outside playing. I also miss the monsoon season and the lighting storms that would surround the valley.
