It's a Bird, It's a Plane, NO! It's a Super Cell!

We have been plagued by power outages the last couple of days. Yesterday, tornadoes were popping up all around us.

Last night husband and I stood out in the field, the cattle uneasy, and slowly moving toward the barn. Lighting surrounded us, to the north, south, east and west, but none on top of us. Warm air pushed out at us, and we watched as a super cell developed over our heads. The gray and dark blue clouds, began to turn, white fluffed through the not so angry looking storm clouds. You could feel the energy building. It was amazing to watch the mass of clouds fold in on itself, colliding and becoming one. The darkness, a contrasting color to the sun setting sky, turn clockwise above our heads. Slowly the clouds began to drop, forming a wall cloud, and small funnels that never made it to their full potential. Further south however, one of those babies touched the ground, tearing up the Earth it moved over.

Well, that would get the old juices flowing for sure! Animals just seem to know when bad weather is headed their way!

My daughter (who is twelve and has lived in tornado-free Maine her entire life) would be so jealous! She loves all things weather-related - especially violent weather. Silly girl ;).

My husband loves weather like this too, as long as the dogs and cats are downstairs first. What do you do with the livestock when tornadoes threaten?

I love violent weather as well. Have spent most of my life affected by tornadoes. With the animals, we just let them be. They know what to do, where to go. There as safe as we can make them.
