Auntie Em! Uncle Henry!

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett


Well, we had a bit o' fun today. I heard the low rumble of thunder and looked out the window to see that it had become quite dark. So I did what any self-respecting photogeek would do: I grabbed the camera and ran outdoors. I ended up with an entire sequence of photos, but this one is probably the most dramatic:

Funnel Cloud

The green sky is caused by the refraction of light through hailstones, or so a meteorologist told me once. In front of the green sky is a possible funnel cloud. We saw these clouds swirling away overhead - it looked like something out of a movie. Very unreal.

If you'd like to see the sequence of shots, start here and move your mouse to the upper left-hand corner to click on the portal to the next shot.

And yes, we're fine. The cloud never touched the ground. In fact, it broke up just as quickly as it formed.

P.S. - Check out the pink sunset we had later in the evening.
