Driving Home by Konijntje Driving Home by Konijntje
Driving home on a typical spring evening in Texas...

I was stuck in a hail storm in Plano on my way home from work. I pulled into a gas station where I swear there were at least 459 other cars packed together under the roof in the most creative ways. I was the last one to squeeze in. Next to me was the Channel 11 News Spot reporter. I was interviewed. They asked funny questions for which there are no normal answers.

Them: So, what did you think as you were driving home?

Me: I thought I better get the f*ck out of here!

Them: So, did you have any idea what was about to happen?

Me: Sure, but I just sooo love putting my car under quarter sized hail!

Them: So, what do you think about all this rain?

Me: I think it's wet....and it makes really great On the Spot News Interviews. :roll:

Anyway, when I got home I took this picture. It was like being in the eye of a storm...a quiet eye. The entire sky was swirling all around me in the most fantabulous and surreal way.

I love weather.

That's just incredible... I have only once seen a sky so impressive, but it was very different to this. This looks like the crazy clouds in that cheesy Flash Gordon film with Topol in it. Haha, that is in no way a criticism! You captured it absolutely perfectly, by the way.
