The photo above showing an ominous sky was taken from my home, about four miles (6.5 km) northeast of Fort Morgan, Colorado, on June 21, 2010. I was captivated by the angry colors of these storm clouds as nightfall approached — the Sun had not yet set.  Photographer Debi Bratrsovsky; Debi’s Website

We were under a tornado warning, so after getting my children to safety downstairs, I headed out to our deck to watch the storm move in across the plains. Soon, powerful winds, like none I had ever experienced, signaled this severe storm’s arrival. Our home sustained some damage but no funnel clouds were sighted. However, a tornado was confirmed just a couple of miles from my location.
