Severe Weather

For three days, we have watched the severe weather
that has hammered Denver slide around us.

We watch wall clouds form in the afternoon



and hope the tail clouds

are mere clouds
 

and not the start of a tornado.
 

We've been lucky
 
so far.

I heard on the news that Denver area got hit pretty hard. Stay safe, and keep your head down!

5 tornados touched down on Weds. Today, we watched in fascination at the wall cloud rotating outside to our East. It started to drop (which is when we heard the tornado sirens going off in Aurora) but then the storm dissolved and blew apart right before the rainapocalypse occurred. Spring is not being nice to us.

Near Albany, NY they had hail the size of softballs yesterday. Hopefully you will not get any bad weather. Love the rainbow in the last picture.

I hope you continued to stay safe, I truly hate intense storms.
What fabulous pictures, especially the rainbow almost gives the "all clear" signal.

I'm glad you've been spared, and sure hope your luck holds out! I don't suppose you have a storm cellar big enough for all the big boys. :(

Stormy skies are a thing of beauty. And you really captured that beauty here Terry. Amazing. And I love that last shot of the rainbow.

I like the last image with the rainbow! I love rainbows, I turn into a big child when I see one, excitable and wishing I would find a pot of gold at the end of one!

Also, just to say as I haven't yet, thank you for your kind words on my guest post on Jim's blog. I really appreciate it.
All the best,
