We were in a tornado watch, but it was bright and sunny most of the day. The wind wouldn't stop blowing, and at times made scary noises coming through the trees. Then, I hear tap tap tapping on the window, only to look out and see some raindrops. The funny thing was, it was very bright out. I went out to see if there was a rainbow and was pelted with big, fat, cold raindrops that smacked me in the back.
The weather man promised rain, but most of it blew quickly over. When I went out to lock up the chickens, that's when I saw all of the lightning storms well off to our west. Don't worry, as I took these photos, I could look straight up and see stars so I was in the clear.
