The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

We've got rotation!

What a day yesterday was!!! It started out like normal... a little work around the house, headed down to the church for a work day. Then, I joined up with my wonderful groom, to head out of town for Tallahassee for our market adventure. Well, before we were able to get out of town, we ran into a little thunderstorm action. Well, better than that... we ran into a ROTATING WALL CLOUD!!!!REALLY LOW WALL CLOUD Of course, we did the only thing we could. We chased that bad boy, and we got into position to let that really awesome structure pass right on by. If you look at the series, you can see the rotation. (If you are on my Facebook, you can click through the pictures fast and see the rotation clearly!) I took video, but it's terrible, and I am terrible with video anyway. I much prefer pics. These pics are zoomed out all the way. This is how close we were to it!! We could feel the inflow of the storm, sucking all the air in to it. That's experiencing weather! We were in the perfect spot!

Of course, I was in heaven. I hadn't been on the computer all day, so I had no idea what the weather looked like. I hadn't seen any radar and am still utilizing a stupid phone for the time being, so I called into VA Mike and AL Mike to get some information about what we were looking at. They both saw a notch in the radar and an indication of broad rotation. DEW-yah! I did call into into the NWS to report the rotating beast, but it did dissipate, and they never warned it, but I experienced it, so it made my day!!! It was SO CLOSE to the ground!!!

***Incidentally, if you ever see anything like this, get indoors, lowest floor, in your safe place. It could potentially drop a tornado and be extremely dangerous.***

Have a beautiful day.
