This week in pictures is after the storm. We had a rather large storm come through the area producing many tornados and winds that were crazy. Our area of town was spared some of the worst as the storm weakened slighted as it went through, but quickly intensified again as it went through town. After the storm had passed, it was perfect timing for the sun to pop from under the clouds and highlight the already very cool looking mammatus clouds. Here are a couple of the quick shots I was able to get. The area I was in was filling up quickly with water as it is a collection lake for runoff. The water rose probably 6 inches from the time we go to the spot until we left. I did collect one tick as well, which was surprising as I was there less than 15 minutes and the grass was cut very low. Guess predictions were right that ticks are going to be very bad this year.
