Sunday night, an area south of Dallas got hit by a Category 2 tornado. I heard the weather warnings on the news and saw the storm path was predicted to come to our area. So of course I grabbed my camera and headed out to see what I could see.
Well, I never expected the gorgeous clouds, colors, and even fury that those skies showed. Luckily, it just edged our area and never brought us the storm. I felt guilty enjoying such magnificence when I knew the folks directly under/in those storms would be suffering. Happily, no one was hurt or killed, but unfortunately there was plenty of damage to homes and schools.
The video someone shot of the tornado ("We're inside the tornado!") made the national news. I'm glad I'm not posting any of those reports and instead just sharing the absolute gorgeous colors and clouds we saw from our side of things.
As the sun was setting, some of the clouds reflected the intense orange and looked rather hellfire-ish.
And then it settled back into a more friendly pink tone and finally back to greys. Greys filled with lots and lots of lightning!
