Tornado weather

In many ways, it's a good thing that SmithKatie and I had no idea that tornado warnings had been issued yesterday evening. We were walking down It looked like tornado weather - I said as much, with the sky an unhealthy green - but for some reason didn't think Toronto was prone to them. Still, the weather was lurid enough that I took a few pictures.

If I hadn't taken the picture myself, and seen the "data missing" warning when I tried opening it, I would have been certain that this one was a heavily-doctored photographic collage.

Around midnight, two thunderstorms collided over the city. We watched them roll in from the west and south, sheets of lightning dancing in the air, while a family of racoons - four little ones - bumbled around the neighboring rooftop. Eventually the skies opened up, and we watched the storm glimmer through the expanse of the skylight.

Excellent photos - I'll tell Andrew to have a look at them (also he likes thunderstorms). I'm glad the weather has cooled down, except the AC's still on at my office, & I'm currently freezing.

Nice pictures. Makes it feel like the sky is pressing down, about to squish us all. Maybe I've just been playing too much Dynomite at http://games.yahoo.com/games/downloads/dy.html
