Photos: After the Storm

It's 6:35 p.m., and we've just been issued a tornado warning -- a weather spotter spotted one on the ground near Newman Grove.  The camera is pointed that way... but Newman Grove is 34 miles to our northwest, and I see nothing but clouds.  And sun.  And lots of lightning.

Looking down from a second-floor window.

The neighbor man outdid himself, mowing his yard.  He usually takes over an hour at it, but he kicked his mower into high gear when lightning started flashing a little too close for comfort.

Now it's ten 'til seven, and those cloud fragments below the main bank are not sure which direction they're traveling.  Now and then they get their act together and whiz around in a wide circle.

Looking south


Now it's 9:10 p.m. and the sun is just setting.  It rained earlier, and hail the size of quarters fell for about ten minutes.


See Tabby strolling down the sidewalk?

I called his name... and now he's trotting back.





Tabby is 19 1/2 years old.  Poor little kitty has a cataract in his right eye.




9:35 p.m. now
