Summer Storm in the Midwest

A storm rolling in as seen from my patio.




This view is looking straight overhead. The start of a tornado?

Holy cool clouds Batman!!! Was that last Monday's storm? It was a doozy!

Yeah, that was the kind of thing they watch for on the Doppler Radars - when they see those things, it will generate a Tornado Watch - because that only defines the conditions which COULD give rise to a tornado.

Oh my word. I would have peed my pants. He takes AMAZING photos though, I could stare at them all day. (but instead I have to work, sigh) Was it a tornado?
