Tuesday Storm – What a Day

June 12th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Adirondack Life

I was so distracted by the sudden reduction in heat yesterday. Tuesday’s dual thunderstorms were pretty epic.

Big Cloud

That picture was just before the after-lunch storm looking North from “the center”. There were huge clouds developing and this one was just about to hit us. It was about 90 degrees when I took the photo. 45 minutes later after a period of wind and rain, the temperature dropped to 70. Seems both kids were stuck in the gym due to a tornado warning. Ha ha.

Rainbow Over Plattsburgh

The evening storm was twice as violent with 3x’s the rain. My street was briefly a swiftly flowing river. But almost immediately it was over and we were treated to this big rainbow over Plattsburgh. This pic is for Wendy.

Storm, storm, storm, storm, storm, storm, storm, and storm.

    Thanks 🙂 I sure am glad my sister asked me to move to the Adirondacks with her family and my bro’s family. It has let loose a flood of held back emotions. My base camp will be near Cranberry Lake and I soooooooo look forward to camping at all my old stomping grounds!

    When I was in high school I wanted to be an interior ranger at West Canada Lakes. Back then women couldn’t go to the ranger school. I applied at SUNY-ESF and U of MT, got accepted to both and took off for MT forestry school. I thought it was pretty cool there were things written by Bob Marshall and a whole wilderness area named after him in MT 🙂

    I love rainbows. Thank you.

    Totally welcome! And by that, I mean, “Welcome Home!”
