Rain, Hail, Lightning, Thunder and Tornadoes – Oh My!

Rain, Hail, Lightning, Thunder and Tornadoes – Oh My!

 

Last night was a wild weather night in Colorado.  It all started around 5:00 pm at my house.  First we had incredible gusts of wind, then out of nowhere, hail stones started pelting the ground.  Pretty soon, rain was falling in buckets.  Next came the tornado sirens (3 times).  Of course, instead of going down to the basement to take cover, I went out to the street in front of my house to see if I could get a picture of any tornado clouds.  I got a couple of cool cloud shots, but then the hail started pelting me in the head and my husband made me come in.  (I think he was worried about the camera). 

 

The house lit up all night long with intense lightning strikes and booming thunder.  My golden retriever, Rocky, didn’t leave my side for a minute. 

 

Colorado does have some extreme weather at times.  Never a dull moment!

Rain, Hail, Lightning, Thunder and Tornadoes wow... How did I miss all this news!  Dry as a bone here, not a cloud in the sky and calm.  Oh how we would love rain... don't need the hail, lightning or tornadoes!  Still dealing with wildfires on this end of the line.

Belinda - it just goes to show how intrepid ActiveRainers are. They go through rain, storms, and dark of ......rainbows to get the story. Great pictures. We had another monsoon yesterday-all day and last night too.
