Summer Storms

With the hot, hot temperatures it's inevitable that we'll have some summer storms and this week has been no exception. Our prairie skies can change so quickly that it's really fascinating.

It looked pretty scary for awhile.

Two air masses colliding over our house.

Just a little later, great big hailstones came down for a bit and then we got some smaller pieces too. I love how the sheets of rain are coming off the roof here.


  1. That's one of my favourite parts of Alberta summers. Our big, blue sky makes it possible to see the storms forming, the sheets of rain coming down and the cracking of thunder and lightening in the distance. Beautiful!

  2. Wow, those are AMAZING photos!

  3. It is beautiful! We don't have those open prairie skies that allow the clouds to just roll in and roll out... It is cool!

  4. Those skies are awe-inspiring! I can't imagine what it would be like to watch 2 sustems colliding. Wonderful photos!

  5. Crystal,
    Your photos are wonderful. I so enjoyed seeing these. That must have been a big storm!!
