Stormy Skies

How's the weather where you are? So far our summer has been stormy. Wind, rain, hail, severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and brief periods of sun. 

All these storms produce some interesting skies. Here are a few of my faves from the last couple weeks. These are all unedited images from my phone. 

It hailed and rained heavily right after this.

Before the loudest thunder I have ever heard

After the storm...lovely mammatus clouds

  6. Very dramatic!

    We have, at present, some very dark clouds off to the west, and the wind is picking up.
