Day 142 (May 22) It took and hour or two for the clouds to roll in and darken the sky. I went out at the darkest point to photograph the dramatic clouds. I spent ten minutes outside. It was only in the second half of that time period that the winds whipped up and then a few sprinkles fell. When it ended my husband texted from a mall 5 miles away to warn me to watch out for the hail he just saw and a friend 15 miles away texted and told me they were under a tornado warning. It was hard to believe because the sun had just come out so brightly above my neighborhood! Amazing how different a crazy storm can be in such a small area.
