Give it up for this beautiful picture.  Amidst the danger, Ruthmarie captured the beauty of the "gathering storm"  Imagine the sheer force and devastation that it carries.  There is an eerie calm about it all.  What a contrast.  Please stop by Ruthmarie's post and leave her a comment

The jet stream has created some particularly volatile weather in our region over the past several years.  Watching storm clouds gather has almost become a hobby.  This was taken about a week ago in the Gedney Farms neighborhood of White Plains NY.  It was in the wake of all of the dangerous tornadoes that hit the south.  There were some isolated tornado warnings in New Jersey – which is rare at any time – although we do get some in the summer around June.  The sky was ominous enough for me to question whether or not I should be out.  The eerie contrast between the bright spring colors and the dark gray sky prompted me to stop for a photo op!  The clouds hung so low that I could almost imagine a funnel cloud forming.  But I had things to do for my clients.  Perhaps I should have listened to my gut.  The the storm did break I could not see three feet in front of me and had to pull off the road.

Hi Lloyd - Thanks for the reblog.  We had torrential rain - I had to pull off the road - you couldn't see two feet in front of you.  But no tornadoes - although there were warnings I didn't know about at the time.
