We actually had a tornado warning in the area yesterday. We didn't see one, but the conditions sure looked like there could have been one.
Wednesday is the day that we go in to the big city of Swift Current to do our grocery shopping. We try and leave around noon, and we're back between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. It's about a 45 minute drive each way.
The Saskatchewan Prairies near Cabri regional Park.
The little blue car!
There's a reason Saskatchewan is called "Land of the living skies"!
When we were coming back, the sky in the distance was black. I should have stopped and got a picture of it. But that storm missed us and the sky had cleared up quite a bit by the time we arrived back at the campground.
But the next storm didn't miss us!
Around 8:00pm, we started hearing thunder in the distance and I went outside to look at the sky.
Sure enough, about a half an hour later it poured with rain. And windy, with lots of lightning! The rain stopped, but the lightning continued for about an hour. We've never seen so much lightning. It was flashing two or three almost every second. Just like a strobe light was going off outside.
The rain had stopped so I went down to the beach and tried to get a picture of the lightning. I took about 30 one second exposures, but I didn't have a tripod so this was the best I could do...
A little fuzzy, but you get the idea!
Things are still a little wet outside this morning so it must have rained again overnight. Calling for a nice day though....hope you enjoy yours!
