Stormy Weather

We’ve had some unsettled weather around here lately. We’ve had lots of severe thunderstorm warnings and ominous skies, but usually they pass us by to the north and hit farm country, or to the south and head for Niagara and the lakeshore. The only thing that ever really seems to come through here is a bunch of sound and fury, and the odd tornado.

At one point, in a blue-black sky, a completely straight band of cloud, level with the horizon, came up over the horizon and rolled across the sky like a huge wave rolling in on a huge beach. It was very eerie. And three biplanes, heading from an airshow somewhere, flew across the sky and disappeared into the distance, no doubt trying to beat the storm home. It was a very weird sky.

Weird skies like that here in Tornado Alley always draw us out onto the porch in hopes of a good thunderstorm, so this time we took our camera. Too late for the biplanes, unfortunately.

  1. We were watching that same storm on our porch. You feel as if you shouldn’t be out there, scary but cool!

  2. Very scary looking. I remember a storm when I was 3-4 and visiting Ontario with my family. BDH was a cute bump on Mom’s belly. It was so severe it scarred me so badly I still remember it. It was as dark as night and I had never seen anything like it. I still am terrified of t&l storms (although I wouldn’t tell my kids that). I think my heart is going to pound out of my chest every time. You can actually see my shirt jumping with the powerful heart beats. You can just keep the storms up there and not send it our way, thankyouverymuch.
