“The sky was boiling,” is how Edds described what he saw.

    That’s great that he was brave enough to take those awsome pics!! I was outside when the bad clouds first started rolling in and it looked like the sky was going to reach down and get me! LOL It was the thickest 3d lookin-est clouds i’ve ever seen in my life! And dark too, It looked like night time outside! Whew I hope we dont have another storm day like that ever! Today is absoutly beautiful though, ‘cept for the wind being so cold, but I’ll take that any day versus what happend yesterday!
