Living downtown sometimes allows for some impressive weather events to pass by. I have definitely seen an increase over the past 10 years of severe thunderstorms in the GTA and this past week it has been in the 40’s with the humidity here in Toronto with no relief until today.
Here is a picture taken of some clouds rolling across the sky getting ready to dump some much needed moisture. It rained briefly and about a half hour or so after it passed it was pretty much dry on the streets.
The other photo is from my friends cottage and shows some sheet lightning rolling across the northern shore of Georgian Bay here in Ontario in the spring. I have seen the remnants of water spouts there before also. Lots of weather up there to admire.
These clouds looked like the inspiration for some sci-fi effects. I love extreme weather but don’t get exposed to it as often as I like. Don’t get me wrong, sunny days are certainly preferred but it sure is amazing to see the weather process unfold. So much power.
