Under a strong storm warning

Shortly upon awakening this morning we were startled by the loudest crash of thunder I have ever heard. It sounded like it was on top of us and the house literally shook. Hubs thought there had been an explosion in the neighborhood. We were under a tornado warning for several hours. That has passed but storm clouds are still very dark in the sky. It is not a good day to go out but we need to go to the pharmacy to pick up hubs prescription. We will be gone for a couple hours and then I will be back. How is your weather today?

Those look like some really nasty clouds. We had the same storm come through but we didn't have thunder. It was in the 30's and we had a lot of rain and some very high winds. Yesterday and today, it's a bit chilly but the sun is shining.

It's a beautiful day here but I'm feeling for all those of you who are watching and waiting to see which way the storms head. Stay safe.

No storms here but it is cold here today. I had to be outside for a while earlier and I got earaches in both ears due to the cold and I wasn't even outside for very long.

We have very strong winds that are making the dog a nervous wreck. We are to have 1 to 3 inches of snow, but counties farther north in IL will have a lot more snow. It is the heavy wet snow that is so hard to shovel.

The sky does look very ominous but what a beautiful street. Be careful when you go out to pick up the prescription. It is scary when you hear the loud thunder and it sounds as if it has hit your house or someplace close to you.

It's been snowing sideways for almost 4 hours now. We have over 2 inches of snow with possibly 6 more inches. Yuck.
