when you say that "there is a storm", it never rains, seek for real news, and not fill the newspaper with ........!!!!!!!!!!!!...

fconverse - From what I have observed over the years, they certainly do at times look that dramatic. Too many of us just don't seem to notice or because we're living in a more urban area such as Stamford etc, the view of the sky is more limited than it would be say in the mid-west. .... Don't forget, we do get tornadoes around here on occaision. Fortunately they are usually short lived and don't develop into really big ones such as they can have out west.

Dramatic! it looks like a stage 5 tornado about a mile or two wide… never really seen in this part of the world.. not to mention wouldn't want to.. No if this puppy is that close and you're enjoying its' majesty .. think twice and head for a sturdy basement.. becuse after the majesty, your neighborhood will look post atomic disaster.

I WISH our storms looked this dramatic! Nice photo.
