Tornadoes??? What?

So two weeks ago we had the craziest weather. It would be beautiful in the morning and then at night it would get really stormy and these sirens would start going off which meant...tornadoes! I have never seen it rain so hard in my life. We got soaked running from our car to our apartment where we had to camp out in the basement for a little bit. We thought it was kind of lame staying in the basement, but then there was a spotting of a tornado like a mile away from us. Even the mall had everyone get in their shelter. Here are a few pictures of our basement stakeout.




These pictures don't do justice. The clouds are about 10x darker than the picture shows and the clouds were moving so fast toward us. It was scary, but really cool. Don't worry though-we survived!

I am just glad you were safe! I can't even imagine what that must have been like!

Girl, you are not in Montana anymore! You have experienced every weather extreme there is! I think you and Dave should become professional storm chasers...

That looks so dang fun! I wish I could have been there with you. I love big storms. We had a thunderstorm when we were in St. Louis and I wanted to see a tornado so bad, just as long as nothing happened, though. Glad you were safe - crazy Milwaukee weather!
