Second post—the storm

Just as I published tonight’s post, a severe storm hit the area.

IMG_6385Emma and I hunkered down as the rain and hail hit.  She was shaking like a leaf.

The sirens were screaming, but there was no tornado shelter at this park.

IMG_6391After the twenty minute onslaught, we stepped outside to get some photos.

IMG_6393We weathered the storm, thankfully, but it was a little scary!  :)  The power of nature continues to amaze me.

 

Thanks for stopping by….talk to you later,  Judy

  6. The storm pictures are fantastic, but I don' think I'd want to go through what you had to endure. And the trip around Dallas is never easy no matter where you're coming from or where you are headed.

    Be careful in those storms!

  8. What absolutely awesome photos. I love your blog it's the first one I read but please be careful with this crazy weather. We live in the Ozarks and tornado warnings are never fun.

  10. Sure glad your storm is over with. We've been sitting here with tornado warnings and severe thunderstorms and they're supposed to last most of the night. That means I won't get much sleep tonight.

  11. Holy Storm Chaser, Batman! That was a wicked bunch of clouds! But I can just see you now, with camera in hand, anxious to catch the glory of the moment thru your lens.
    I learned the hard way that everything's bigger in Texas the first time I experienced hail the size of softballs.
    Glad you made it thru! Breathtaking photos. K

  14. Yikes! You've been in my thoughts this evening! Glad you and Emma are okay! Now I'm wondering if there are more storms for tonight. Duck and cover! Any hail damage?

  15. Holy Cow! It just keeps happening with you and Emma doesn't it!? I think someone awhile back suggested you writing a book?

    We made it home in some wind today ourselves; no storms like yours though!! Glad you didn't get blown back to Oklahoma!!!

  29. Glad you made it through that storm alright! No damage to the rig, I hope. Gorgeous cloud formations there. I'd say that's a fine reward for enduring the wrath of that system.

  30. Oh My.. Sure are glad you didn't have any damage. Poor little Emma.. You two have really been put through it lately. Maybe all the roads will be paved with gold from here on in. The pictures are just beautiful...

  31. Your pictures are stunning! What some people will go through to get the perfect shot! :-)

    After reading this post, the new Toby Keith song "Trailerhood" is going through my head...

    "...When the storm starts getting bad
    You hear those sirens humming
    Grab a six pack and a lawn chair
    There's a tornado coming...."

    Stay safe!

  33. There is a vault (yep, a bank vault) in the office building behind us. That's our storm shelter in case things "go south" here.

    You've never had a tamale?!?!?! Lady, you just haven't lived! :)
