Hails Bells

Two posts in one week.

'Tis OK

If you have added you blog to the Awesome Bloggers Tab...
I thank thee...
If not...
Go do it...
Like NOW.
K?
Thanks :)

This is Oklahoma...
We gather to watch the storms...
You totally know the storm is a good one, when you go out to look...
and all the neighbors are coming out to look also.
YUP
This is Oklahoma....

We tend to be mesmerized....
We stand out to "LOOK" at rotations in the clouds.

This is dirt from the fields being sucked up into the storm....
(up draft)
This usually means...
There is a nader 'bout to form.
Last night was pretty cool.
We had a hail storm to the South...
AND
one to the North.
They hit right over our house....
This is actually the picture of the North storm sucking the life right out of teh South storm.

Totally amazeballs to watch!

Every good Oklahoman knows though.....
When to run and hide....

Party in the storm shelter...
{She would not take a serious picture}
Yes there were tornado "touch n go's"
like 4 within 5 miles of our house....
One was 1 miles NW of our home....

Someone watches the radar on the tv
until the very last second....
After all 3 storms and all the hail passed....
Finally got to sleep....
Then the alarm goes off.
I hear thunder.
Seriously....
*SIGH*
Then hail.....
It hailed for a good 20 minutes...
Marble sized hail.
Then....
came  golf ball size hail

UGH!

We get an instant replay tonight.
Lucky Us....

It's crazy, these storms used to roll through in March, now we're almost in to June and they're rolling through like crazy. that EF5 hit here last year and blew Joplin away on the 22nd of May. Seriously!

Oh and BE CAREFUL!!

Those are beautiful pictures! I'd probably be scared crapless...but still, looks like fun :)

Sheila said...

ha!! As soon as I see clouds like that - I RUN to the storm shelter and hide like a little puppy! I do NOT like storms - and I've lived in Oklahoma all of my life and a storm has NEVER effected anything more than us loosing electricity!
Glad all is good :)

Dang, that is some big hail! I cracked up when I saw you used a lighter to show the size of the hail. ;o)
