We are located in the Midwest and have had some crazy storms popping up the last couple of days. Last night we encountered wind gusts for hours upon hours up to 60+ mph. I took some shots from my back porch with my telephoto lens as the clouds rolled in. My sons were watching with me and my oldest said, "Mommy, I think today is the end of the earth". Truly, it was quite eerie to hear all through the night. Nonetheless, our house is still standing- minus a few shingles.
