Crazzy weather, part deux...

So, we didn't have tornadoes...this is as close as we came:

It actually did look like a tornado. Right after I took this picture, the cloud got pulled toward the ground and more clouds got pulled with it, but instead of making a funnel, they just made a wall. Thankfully, I didn't have to put the kitties in their carriers and move them to the basement. I wasn't feeling especially prepared for that.

The storm wasn't really that impressive at all. No hail (at least not near my place), no power outages, no major cloud-to-ground lightning...

But after the storm, the sky was AMAZING! The sun was just setting and some of the clouds parted enough to let the light out and the result was a really brilliant orange sky in the west and a dark grey/blue sky to the east.
