Looking at the Sky on Friday - 18


For more info on this fun meme, click the image.

A storm went through on Monday. When the rain hit, it was sudden and it was hard. Cory and his friend Pam had just pulled into the driveway when they looked down the street and saw it coming. Cory jumped out of the car as quickly as possible to run into the garage, and the sky opened up and dumped rain on him. It came down in buckets and sheets! Apparently they had driven through it most of the way from school and gotten out of it just as they got to town, but it caught up with them!

After the rain moved through, the clouds were pretty amazing.

I think this is about when the tornado sirens were going off, when we were supposed to take shelter in the basement or something and not be looking out the back door taking pictures, but I needed some shots for Looking at the Sky on Friday! There was apparently a tornado that touched down in the next town over, but nothing here.

If you enjoy skies as much as I do, be sure to check out Looking at the Sky on Friday.


  1. Wow ... what a dramatic sky you've captured in these photos. Methinks I would have taken cover but I'm glad YOU captured and shared these and everyone's okay. My heart goes out to those affected in the next town where the tornado did touch down.
    Hugs and blessings,

  2. Awesome photos! I Love Love Love weather. My dream is to ride with a storm chaser. Those clouds are so beautiful! Hope everyone the town over were ok.

  3. those clouds are amazing! giant swirls!!

  4. Awesome pics! I'm glad you are all safe after the storm. I kinda laughed about your story taking pictures instead of hiding in the basement. I would be doing the same for LATSOF if it happened here, lol. :)

  5. your shots are so beautiful, the weather was greatly captured. I like the way the clouds formed like that or maybe because of the storm brewing up, whatever just as long as it's spectacular!

  6. Oh, these sort of clouds make a girl from the south a little bit nervous! Whoa...I'm off to the "fraidy hole" when I see this sight. *LOL*

    Great shots. Thanks so much for sharing.
