Monday morning we were running around the splash pad dripping with sweat. Tuesday morning we were hanging on to the sides of our homes, trying not to fly away Wizard of Oz style.
I’m learning that this is how the weather in North Dakota works. It can change on a dime. It can be beautiful and it can be ferocious. We had winds up to 90 mph.
I posted a message on Watford City’s facebook page – Watford City Whatz Up?!! – asking people for pics of the storm. I got such a big response I have to showcase them here.
Keep in mind that all of these pictures are from the same storm. The sky is so dynamic and dramatic.
Crystal Banks took some pictures just east of us in Mandan, ND, all of these pictures are as is – no filter or editing!
My favorites were the pictures of some of the destruction around town hehe.
But really, this sky is crazy right? I’ve never seen anything like it.
I survived my first big summer storm. I did not end up in Oz. I will put those two things on my “stuff I accomplished this summer” list.
Thanks for the pictures my Watford friends.
