Crazy weather

Finally last week we've had real some monsoon rains.  Raining and hailing simultaneously.  So hard you can't hear each other in the house unless you shout.  So hard the roads washed out and became like white water rapids.  If you get caught out in it (which we did once) it is impossible to drive, and you have to pull over and wait.  It's torn down barns and made tons of people's roofs leak- including ours.  And we saw the formation of three lakes (okay ponds) along our road.  Two of my friends got pictures of this funnel cloud over our town.  Is it called a tornado once it touches down?  Thank heavens it never did!  Crazy weather.

Very cool picture. I am glad it didn't touch down on you guys either. Thunder storms are so cool. I wish we had more of them here!
