First Storms...

All of the photos below where taken from our backyard deck as the first severe storms of the season rolled in. Fortunately, the two most severe cells passed just to the north and south of us.
Many folks around the Twin Cities had golf ball to egg size hail.

I love the dramatic light effects that occur when clouds and sun combine.

These mammatus clouds where the most dramatic I've ever seen.

There will be much more to come as the summer months approach.

Thanks Joe :) We are indeed, rather small, when one looks at the whole scheme of things.
