We had a very strong storm front come through North Carolina yesterday. Since the purpose of the little camera was to take snapshots during lunch, I drove just north of Lake Brandt (which is just down the street from my house) to a pasture which stands at the top of a hill to take pictures of the clouds as the front came through. The wind was terrifically strong and any leaves left on the trees are now really and truly gone. We were even under a tornado warning until 4 am this morning which meant that I got very little sleep as my weather warning radio would go off periodically for warnings for Guilford County where Greensboro is. I'm always worried about a tornado coming in the middle of the night and me not having enough time to go downstairs to the half bath that sits under the stairs next to the concrete block common wall (I live in a townhouse). The most dangerous tornadoes in the Southeast are the ones that come in the middle of the night; those are the ones with the high death tolls.

It is bright and sunny this morning, but the winds are forecasted to gust to over 30 mph today.
