Big Storms


My power was out for two hours last night due to the severe weather that came through our area. I was a little worried without my trusty TV weatherman to tell me to take cover. Luckily things never got that bad. This was the sky before the storm hit.



And this is some bonus video I took from my front porch., although it's probably not really a good idea to stand outside in high winds and possible tornado weather. I hope my rose garden was not damaged. I was really worried about those trees - they seemed to be swaying a lot.

Good video, I am ready for the storms to stop, of course I will ask for rain in July.

Guess this is the downside of Spring. Looks like there were violent storms all thru the South.

I'm about sick and tired of the thunderstorms, tornado alerts here in B"ham. We hear the tornado sirens so often no one pays any attention anymore. I think it roars through your area on the way to ours.

Nice shot!

That's just gorgeous!! I'm jealous of your tall trees. Storms are less impressive when seen through six-foot Bradford Pears.

Yikes...reminds me a little of a small hurricane! I know you can get some bad storms in that area; I've driven through a few on my way to somewhere...hopefully all is well and no trees went kaput on your house. That's what we worry about here with tall towering water oaks...

We have big pines over here. They were doing alot of swaying. Luckily only a few branches fell and none of them hit my house. I think it's time to invest in a battery-powered radio though!

You know what they say about successful trees, they've learned how to bend. Take care. And that does include the rose garden.

I love the video! It makes me really homesick. I know storms are nothing to make light of (they can be deadly), but I do have so many good memories surrounded by crazy thunderstorms. Thanks for the video.

After the calm of the first shot the video is quite impressive and a bit terrifying for us unused to these winds.

I agree with Olivier. Looks like a horror film. You are courageous!
