Tornado Clouds

The sky was stunning tonight as we drove towards Denver. Chris said that dark clouds with streaks like big paint strokes reaching towards the ground often indicate an imminent tornado. Don't worry; they were very, very far away from us.

I, of course, had to stop for pictures...

Glad they weren't near you!

What exquisite photos! Did I ever mention that I grew up in Boulder? That's my old homeland!

I wish I'd gotten to Boulder and Estes Park when I was in CO at Tami's in-laws' some years back at Xmas. It looks so beautiful.

Beautiful photos, though I would have been a bit freaked out. I'm absolutely terrified by the idea of tornados, though thankfully -- despite my time in two states that frequently get them -- I've never actually seen one. I pray I never do.
