Tempermental sky

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Preferred Realty

  The weather in Illinois can be surprising on an average day.  I'm one of the odd ones that gets excited when the clouds start swirling and acting funny.  Mind you, I am terrified of tornadoes, but love to watch what is going on outside.  Some of the clouds in the pictures I'm posting here are almost like viewing a temper tantrum starting to come out in a petulant child.  You can see the emotion and violence coming through.

 

  

 

    

the main thing I regret is that I couldn't get a shot of the rainbow that appeared after this storm went through.

Sandra:  Awesome photos!  I'm from Texas and tornados happened.  Fortunately I was never in one but they came close.  I love watching the clouds and love storms but don't like the violent storms.

We lived in Michigan and we had to seek shelter more often there than I ever did in Texas.  Even though I am not a fan of cold weather, I loved watching the snow fall.  If I didn't have to go out in it, I loved it.  Sitting inside cozy and warm. 

Weather is amazing.  We are now getting lots of calls (in FL) from people who are just tired of the winter thing!  Too much snow, cold, ice, whatever!  They have had enough.  They either want to live here permanent or just during the winter.   Right now there are so many bargains.  It is such a wonderful time to be in Florida.  I'm on the West Coast and the weather is great.  You can play golf year round but now is the best time.  The beaches are beautiful and you can cross the state in 3-4 hours.  I don't know why everyone isn't coming here.

Nice shot Brian!  I don't usually chase storms, love the comfort of my house, but will stand on the back porch or front yard to watch it all.
