Our part of the state has seen storms as well the last two weeks, though not as severe as what the central part of the state has seen. Last night I was pretty much glued to the TV coverage. We had one tornadic storm pass about 20 miles to the north and about an hour later a second pass 20 miles to to the south. But our community's tornado sirens never went off. Other than some really heavy rains which flooded the roads for awhile, we suffered no other effects of the storms.
Thursday night's storms left damage in Tulsa, we got heavy rain from those early in the afternoon. But as the sun was going down, I captured these images from the retreating storm.
The rain has been really good for the roses this year. While out admiring these beauties, the sun came out and provided me with another reminder that nature can be both terrifying and beautiful.
According to the weather forecast we will have a few days of respite from the unstable air that fosters these storms. So I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend of household chores and some serious stitching. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
