An alert was sounded, but nothing touched down in our area, but it sure got our attention.

Looks ugly, indeed. We've certainly seen enough of that stuff around here.

Usually the tornados form further east of the mountain range EM, but you just never know when one might form up right in your area.

some of the best storms we've been in have been in Texas, always makes us a bit nervous being in an RV, so we always scout out a good place to go to, just in case.

A serious big sky in that one, good news it kept on going without touching down.

High winds came in and blew it into Kansas where Dorothy lives.

It sure cooled the day down quickly, lots of lightning and rain out to the East.

Wow ! That would give me pause...at least pause. Great pix.

Bob, in your travels, you come across some very interesting subjects.

After burning thousands of gallons over the last 10 years on the road, we've seen a lot that we never expected. Seems there is a picture around every bend in the road. Thanks for taking a look, always appreciated.
