Stormy Sunday

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me, Ammy, Chief Meteorologist at Ao4 HQs, here with Stormy Sunday! Our weather has been a mix of blisteringly hot with high humidity to severe storms which cool things down... then it all fires back up again! Mom has shot some pretty cool pix of all the storms, so I thought I'd share them with you instead of doing Serene Scenery Sunday. OK? Let's get started!

Oh - I should add, she only has photos of the storms that swept through during the day, not the ones at night. She said that would make sense to you.

Here's a shelf cloud that rolled in on Wednesday.

Isn't it beautiful!?! Mom pieced some pix together to get more of a panoramic view. Here's what that looked like:

I should add that if our neighbors would move their house, we'd have even better pix to share with you!

Here's that same cloud a minute later:

There were really cool bolts of lightning that went with that, but Mom wasn't fast enough on the trigger to get them. She did shoot three short videos that you are welcome to view over on FlickR. One is the
calm before the storm, the next is the wind kicking up, and the third was taken out front (instead of out back on our deck) just as the rain was coming in.

We had a series of powerful storms that rolled through yesterday. Here's a look at the start of the first one:

Doesn't it look like a giant spaceship hovering over us? But it wasn't! Here's another photo, taken just a few minutes later!

You can see the rain out there, can't you? We really didn't need any more.

Here's a look at everything out front:

So that happened a couple of times yesterday and again during the night and this morning. OH! And here are a couple shots Mom took this morning of the most powerful, the most awesome, the most beautiful storm of all!

Storm!

Well.... isn't she?!?! Ohhhhh, I should have said, "...the most powerful, the most awesome, the most beautiful Storm (with a capital S) of all!"

Storm says, "Oh, Ammy, you're so sweet!"

I love my big sister! She's my favorite Storm (or storm) of all! Happy Stormy Sunday!

Love,
Ammy

PS: A very happy Father's Day to our dad!!!

  12. Your Storm is the most beautiful Storm we've seen - and the only Storm we love to see! Your other storm photos gave our mommy a belly ache - she hates those storms.

    Happy Father's Day to your dad!

  20. Stormy is, indeed, lovely and powerful. As for those giant clouds... EEEEE! I am glad we have lots of trees so that I never have to see big scary sky stuff.
