Storm clouds over town

We had quite the little storm roll through today. Our editor, Cyndi, took these pics. The first shows how the clouds looked as they came over the hill into town; the next shows the cloud bank as it moved over town; and the next shows a spinning hole, into which the clouds were being pulled, sucked, drawn, whatever you want to call it. Close call.

Amazing pictures! If you painted this, people wouldn't believe it--at least in this part of the country.

Ew! Looks like you got the makings of a tornado! I've lived in different parts of tornado alley all of my life. That looks pretty ugly! Hope all was safe!

Hi Ed and Kaye. It was pretty hairy there for a few minutes. I just kept waiting for it to drop down out of the cloud. Then the rain opened up and it seemed to break up a bit. Of course it was probably still there, we just couldn't see it.

Pretty incredible looking at it close up though.
