We weren't able to make it out to the farmstead because of the rain. We got 4 inches last night. Instead my mother and stepfather came over and while the men played welder, my mother and I went out chasing storm clouds.
Since I was driving I didn't get many photos. However I did get one of a shelf cloud when my mother yelled at me to stop the car. Ain't it a beauty?
Once we got home and my parents left, I started dinner and we had a local channel on. There where tornadoes popping up all over. And just as the weatherman told us to get to out shelters, the phone rang. It was good neighbor. He was stuck in the city and wanted us to go help out his mother. I sped over and got her out of the house. Good neighbor just called her and told her that one of us was on the way. She thought she was coming over to my house, I said, I thought you had a shelter. She did. I told her we had to go to her's, now. Just as we were climbing down, the rotating wall cloud passed overhead. I shut and locked the door, and we listened to the radio and the wind. Within a few seconds it was gone, and I gave her the all clear. We made it back into the house just as the back side of the storm hit. 70 mph winds and sheet of rain. We turned the news on and watched the weather for a few minutes. I left shortly after, telling her to call if she needed anything.
Good neighbors Jack Russel bit me for my efforts.
I got up this morning to find this
that would be my house and flood waters.
