Storm one is posted below. For storm two, we received severe thunderstorm warnings. We watched the sky get darker...

|Yet, those first three pictures were taken from where I was standing in this picture facing out. This one Evelyn took from where she was sitting in the first picture. Blue skies!|

We got a severe thunderstorm warning on our phones around 10:30pm. Ben moved the cars into the garage and I watched the lightening storm from the front porch.

We had damaged screens and planters but all very minor.
|Good reason to get some new flower pots.|
|Hail stones were a little smaller in the first storm, but there were more of them.|
Because we had minimal damage, it made the storm pretty exciting. Unfortunately, our neighbors a few miles away had it much worse. Here is a news report on it:
And last, here is a photo of the storm from afar:
