Wild Weather in Vermont

Some big, gusty thunderstorms whipped through Vermont earlier today. I love thunderstorms so this was a nice treat.

Swirling dark clouds loomed over Burlington as the storm approached, and when it hit, gusts reached to 55 mph.

The first photo in this post really looks like a funnel cloud looming over downtown Burlington during the storm.

But it was just a low hanging piece of the storm catching some light. The cloud was swirling, but only slowly, so it wasn’t like a tornado was about to touch down. I felt safe as I took the photo.

The second photo shows Burlington’s Church Street as the storm swept in.

About 15 minutes after I took these pictures, we were back to basking in bright spring sunshine.

Go figure.
