The Storm

Last week I went outside to find myself at the very edge of a storm. Half of the sky was bright blue with fluffy clouds, the other, dark and menacing. I watched as the dark clouds started swirling above my head.

A video of the swirling. 

Then the rain suddenly came across the sky like a giant dark curtain.

Giant pellets of hail fell from the clouds and I raced inside. I recorded the storm from the front porch. (Watch for the rogue trash can!)

The storm knocked over quite a few large trees behind our house. After seeing the dark swirling clouds, I wondered if a tornado had started to form!

This tree missed my car by a millimeter! 



Even after the storm was long gone, the roads were still rivers.



 Now there is a huge gap in the trees behind our house, where tall oak trees once stood.

  2. Oh my goodness!!! Thankfully your car and house were not hit! I do love that first photo though – storm clouds are my favorite!

  3. Oh wow what a crazy storm!

  4. That was crazy & terrifying! Great photos, videos & narrative.

  5. Oh my word, thank goodness that your car and home escaped unscathed. That looks like a frighteningly close call for sure. Fingers firmly crossed that you don't run into any other similar terrible storms this year.
