This one had more bark than bite, only got about 1/10 inch of rain, the high winds blew the storm east. thanks for looking. Bob

Tom, the s/w is a great place for sunset and storm cloud photos, the clouds seem to build upon themselves and become very visual. In the east it seems like a lot of the times it just becomes overcast and you can't see the heaviness of them, at least to me that is the way it seems. Thanks for commenting, always appreciated. Bob

It was a nasty looking sky, but the wind just blew the storm out, which of course could be a good thing. Thanks Lori for commenting, always appreciated. Bob

thanks Igor, I really expected a bad storm when these clouds rolled in, but not too much out of it except the photo, I will take that anytime. Bob
