Oh I can't say what I want (something like darn however)....cause I know we can't keep that Arctic front to ourselves. :'(

Oh well can't blame me for trying! (and I know all about re not much to shoot because if I didn't go on trips with my husband the empty snow covered fields here would have left me with one page of shots and the abandoned buildings and machinery nearby would have filled up 5 more and then I would have been left with a few birds and the one deer I just saw within our city limits last Sunday (& co-workers begged me not to photograph every building in the city ;). But it's fun to get involved (those that find our shots boring don't have to look :)

I love learning from you and people like you! :D

Keep in mind those storms will give you some fantastic shots (unless you're like me and eyeing that open spot under the basement stairs ;D

Hi Lilypon, I love this pic with these unsual cloudformation. I collect clouds and I´m sure, I would have taken this one in my collection too! Y* from northern Germany!! Greetings Jörg

Lilypon on February 6, 2008

Thank you Jörg and I'm happy you discovered the above to add to your collection. :)

Cheers, Pam

As-always good catch Lilypon. My grandparents with their dairy farmer wisdom, always warned me that clouds like that meant a tornado was on the way... see similar when that tornado hit Edmonton when I was a kid.

Was there one that day?

I've cut and pasted the above because I can see it in my recent postings but when I look here it has disappeared?!?!?!? (Eduardo is doing strange things to Panormaio......it's almost ghost-like how posts appear and then disappear).

Thanks Brant :)

Thankfully none touched down here. :) We were getting constant warnings until the system just was just below Moose Jaw. I'm not sure what stopped it's ferocity but I'm incredibly grateful it happened. Below Moose Jaw there were some farmers that had to go looking for a number of buildings that had disappeared, others near to them admired wind shields and car bodies that had snowball sized dents in them, etc. We got off so lucky (thoughts of Regina's terrible tornado as well as Edmonton's kept coming to mind that evening). I remember praying that we wouldn't have a cold front move in (it would have been catastrophic had the two systems collided).

Now your post is showing Brant. :)

Pam, I am facinated by clouds and I have never seen the elusive Mamatus clouds but they are scary. My brother saw them in Edmonton last year. I was living in Edmonton when the Big one hit and it was very scary. This is a great picture but it is almost one that you dont want to see. I am going to do a wather tag because where I live we are in the valley and seem to have outr own little system here. Zoe

I'll be watching for it Zoe. :)

This night owl is crashing early...spent the week planting a veggie garden for my father and my family and I've gotta hit the sack!

TTYS Pam
