Brian took this photo of the break between the two thunderstorms, just after the torrential rain and hail stopped. He originally ran outside to take pictures of the flooding in the street and the hail, from the safety of our carport. When he saw the sky, he gave up his cover and ran out into the street. By the time he took this photo, the street had already drained. Brian ended up with over 200 photos, many of them with a rainbow, which looked eerie against the dark thunderclouds.

The clouds on the right were the tail end of the storm that hit us. The clouds on the left dumped their load over Hungry Horse and Glacier Park.

Photo taken by Brian Emerson, August 10. 2011, in Columbia Falls, Montana (USA), with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera.

    What fabulous colour in those storm clouds. We had one here tonight. A thunderbolt hit the next pasture and I had a crackling noise coming through my pc – so off that went:) Cat

  • That must have been awesome, but frightening too. I always tend to hide inside during any thunderstorm. I remember being camped out on top of a mountain near Troy when a huge thunderstorm hit. The lightning was striking all around us and I was worried about one of the trees crashing down on our camp. We wanted to pack up and head for town, but my aunt’s dog chose that moment to start giving birth and we couldn’t move her. I buried myself in my sleeping bag, turned my music up and put the headphones on to try to ignore the sounds of the storm. That’s closer than I ever want to be to nature.
