Storm Coming!

The weather has been very hot and humid over the last week, and we all know what happens when a cold front follows such weather – storms!!  I love to watch storms, and we even have a weather station in the house so we can monitor the conditions.

Yesterday at work someone happened to walk by a window and notice that the sky was becoming quite ominous.  I grabbed my camera and went outside to check it out, and yes the sky was black, the wind had picked up, and the temperature had dropped.  I got one shot before the skies opened up, and this is it:

Pretty awesome right?  I love the way the clouds seem to swirl around the small spot of light in the middle.  A wicked downpour followed, but believe it or not there wasn’t much in the way of thunder and lightening (darn!).  We really needed the rain, but unfortunately the storm skipped the town where I live, so the plants still needed to be watered when I got home :(.

    Love the drama…unfortunate that you didn’t get rain for your plants. Yesterday I thought it was going to rain in London but a few drops fell and then I had to get the watering tin our for my herbs. Hopefully next time.
