Some great ‘sky’ photos as we have been having some dramatic weather around here.
But first today’s sunrise.
Yep it is peaking out. Supposed to be a nice one today. About time because we have had some ugly weather going through the area lately.
But let’s look back a little first:
Sunrise last Wednesday, July 24th.
The misty farmer’s field with the sun in the process of peaking out.
Sun is still working on waking up the world.
There it is!
Now Sunrise Thursday, July 25th:
Then the weekend brought some awful ‘stuff’ our way.
Friday, July 26th…whoa..
We had gone to the Burning Brothers Tap room – gluten free beer and food after work. There for maybe an hour or two. Left to come home around 7 pm and wished we’d left a half an hour sooner.
Of course we were in the car, so you see reflections in the photos.
The skies were decked out with some pretty impressive clouds.
Then the rain began and quickly we were in a pocket of very severe weather:
And hail – the sky where it looks ‘yellowish’ well should look more green.
Traffic STOPPED and we hid under a bridge, nothing was going by us as it was raining and hailing SO hard, not only could you not see, but you were concerned for your car.
Photo taken under bridge as we waited for it to slow down a little. Something that hasn’t happened to us very often, bad enough to ‘hide out’ from the storm while on the road.
Then it slowed down and we decided to make a break for it. Thought it had passed but about 10 minutes from home we saw this again.
Yep, about 5 minutes from home we were hunting for someplace to hide again…we found a person’s driveway under some trees (maybe not the safest place to park in a storm) it provided some shelter from the hail. We seemed to escape damage as far as we were concerned. And at this point it was not so windy, but just slamming rain and hail.
We got home okay, but you could see neighbor’s planters rolling around all tipped over. We have 3 colorful metal flower ornaments in the front of our house, the biggest one was tipped over, busted…oh well. Considering, not much really was hurt in our neighborhood (that I am aware of).
But then around 9:30 pm…it all fired up again.
Yep…those are some large storm clouds, but the most of it stayed just North of us. I took some video of the sky later as the thunder and lightening continued to be *very* present. It looked like the trees were having a strobe light show. Was pretty cool to watch, but I am betting not so fun for the folks who were in the storm zone.
Saturday we met with the kids and had some Mexican food, then on to their house for some gaming and visiting. Home for the evening after that.
Then Sunday – – no photos, but some very bad storms passed through in the afternoon into the evening. We ran out for errands and ended up in a rain storm again, not as bad as on Friday. When we got home from everything, about an hour later another storm just pounded us. We didn’t have a tornado in our neighborhood, but there were several around where we live. Not really close, but in the vicinity.
Lemme: It’s all behind us now, everyone should just chill. Besides, not a drop of rain of ever touched me.
