Pics Of The Day #533

Storm clouds gathered over Westport today — along with a tornado warning.

It never came. But the photo below — one of 3 taken by Jeff Manchester on Saugatuck Shores — sure looks like it could have been one.

Severe weather — including another possible tornado — continues through midnight.

Tornado Watch!

The tornado warning issued around 5:30 tonight was canceled.

But a severe thunderstorm warning — with wind gusts up to 60 miles an hour — was just issued, through 7:15 p.m.

And a tornado watch remains in effect until midnight.

Alert — and fearless — “06880” photographer Patricia McMahon snapped these photos a few minutes ago near Compo Beach.

Get that lawn furniture in. And know where your batteries are!

Raining On Our Parade

The National Weather Service has decided that yesterday’s weather incident was not a tornado.

“Just strong winds,” a spokesman said.  Not even any “circular motion.”

Yikes.

Being on High Point Road — then navigating Hyde Lane, Long Lots and environs in the immediate aftermath — was scary enough for me.

I was sure I’d end up like Dorothy and Toto.

And I definitely saw flying monkeys.

I snapped this photo in the midst of yesterday's non-tornado.
