We interrupt this blog for this severe weather ...

For the record, the first tornado of 2011 was 20 days before the first tornado of 2010 ... and before the start of Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week.
Not a bad lightning shot for a point-and-shoot. (Though there was little thunder in Ripon, there was continuous in-cloud lightning and rumbling to the north and northwest.) The bottom of the photo is the top of our house, so Jannan took this looking west.
Jannan's camera does video!

Meanwhile,  to the north, Erica Dakins got these Stormageddon photos of lightning and downdrafts from Neenah:


  1. That doesn't look good. I just said don't take photos and there you go...

  2. I watched the lightning at home, too. It was like watching the UFOs in Close Encounters talking to each other from above the clouds.
