One of the most fascinating things to do when a storm is on the horizon is to observe the dramatic change in weather. Ominous clouds and dark skies are usually the first signs that a storm is brewing but it’s not until lightning strikes, waterspouts form and powerful waves pound our shores that the real magic begins and while dangerous, stormy weather can be beautiful. We put a call out to you, our loyal readers to share with us your stormy weather photos and boy did you deliver! We received dozens and dozens of dramatic imagery and below are just some of our favorites!
