The sky’s weren't clear yesterday more like over cast ya know the white washed sky look but then holly cow big dark fast moving clouds rolled over and WOW ! I mean fast so fast I had a tuff time photographing them  but I managed to . I love clouds especially  deep dark cloud like this with layers to them soo creepy , mysterious yet beautiful !

As  these clouds were rolling over the winds picked up hard and fast and I could see some of the lower layers of clouds starting to swirl , but I stayed out there and took more photos of them . I knew there wasn’t to be a tornado cause with them there is a jet engine sound as the winds are soo fast and with these clouds there wasn’t any of that  I have been through tornados before and one gets to know them after a while lol .

Then they went right over our house me standing in the middle of the yard photographing as much as I can and they all went north east and as they traveled away from us it was an  amazing sight .

Good Morning, your Geraniums are pretty. I love the cute chipmunk, I've been seeing them running around my yard.. Love watching a storm and the dramatic sky.. we had some storms rolling thru yesterday too. Have a happy Tuesday!

Barbara Rogers said...

At least you didn't have thunder and lightening! I was watching clouds here yesterday too, and about 30 miles from here there was a tornado sighted, but moving in a different direction. Isn't springtime fun?

Deb said...

Nice photos, Elaine. I have a gluttonous chippy here, too.:) Love seeing the geraniums in bloom. Deb

I used to have that same table that you have your salmon geranium on. No idea where it went to, probably broke the glass.

TexWisGirl said...

beautiful moody skies! we've got broody ones here, today, too. love mr. chippy!

William Kendall said...

Some mean looking weather. The munk looks like his mouth pouches are stuffed to the brim!

Linda Kay said...

Dark clouds for sure. The little chipmunk is delightful.

Margaret Adamson said...

Those skies are very threatening but the flowers are lovely.

Pamela Gordon said...

I love those dark cloud photos Elaine. It's interesting to watch the sky and clouds - one of my pastimes. :) Your geraniums look so beautiful and healthy. Mine are ok but only one bloom on each. I'm fertilizing them with each watering now hoping for more. A cold and windy rain here today. Have a good day.

Linda said...

Beautiful photos! :)

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Wow, look at those dark storm clouds. We had pouring rain yesterday and it is really windy today ... so windy, I had to get some of hubby's clamps and put them on the roof of the gazebo!!!

Jane and Chris said...

Fabulous cloud shots...but really, did you have to send the skies to me?!

Wow, what wonderful cloud shots. I've only been in one tornado and so well remember the green luminous color. Glad you didn't need to worry! Have a great evening!

April flowers bring May flowers!
It's looking so much like Spring there-beautiful.

DeniseinVA said...

Those were real broody skies you had there, very dramatic. Enjoyed all your photos. You're like me I am always, always taking them.

Gail said...

That Chipmunk is a good packer!

Have a wonderful day.

Vee said...

Amazing, animated cloud shots! Thanks for the info about tornados. I have not had much experience with them, but what I have had made me very skittish. You have overwintered your geraniums successfully! I also like the salmon color...soft and easy on the eyes.

We share a love for the Salmon Pink Geraniums, they've always been my favorite, and yours are gorgeous !
That was one mean looking set of thunder clouds rolling in, I'm glad to read everything turned out OK.
Beautiful pictures Elaine, thank you for sharing with us.

Linda said...

Those clouds are scary, Elaine!!
Hope the weather smartens up!!
Linda :o)
