Another Storm!

A storm warning went out, so this time I decided to go looking for trouble. My daughter didn’t want to head out storm chasing, so I called Stacey to see if Gen, Bela’s best friend, wanted to go. No sooner than the words left Stacey’s mouth, Gen was moving! I picked her up, and away we went!

This was a fast-moving storm, but we did get hail in the half hour we were out. The clouds were amazing.

Gen always tilts the camera....

I took this one.

Gen took this pic of the rainbow that followed the hail and rain.

Waiting for the Storm

Nebraska has been experiencing some wild weather today. The weather channel had my attention for quite a while.

My friend called me before the storm hit our town. She was getting ready as we chatted. I didn’t do much in the way of preparation. I managed to fill the bathtub with a bit of water, but that was all. I couldn’t help watching the sky. I thought about going out storm chasing, but once the rain hit, I decided to stay in with my pets.

The first “wave” of thunderstorms has come and gone. We had thunder, lightning, hard rain, high winds and some hail. Tornadoes have hit in some places. There may be more severe storms tonight. I’ll be watching the skies….
