These pictures are from one of the major storms we have had this summer. I posted about it here (you know, the post where I spelled 'summer' wrong - oh well). Ironic as it may be, as I type we are in the midst of another severe thunderstorm "watch" right now, and I have heard the skies rumbling from time to time.
The view from my kitchen window. Through all the rain it is difficult to tell that our car, the back alley, a park and a school are in plain sight.
One of the neighborhood boys. His umbrella didn't stand a chance against those winds and it wasn't that bad on our end of town...
plow winds (I believe some people call them straight winds).
