Tuesday in Pics

Tornado warnings (unconfirmed tornado in Lancaster 15 miles east of us this afternoon), severe storm warnings and severe storms passed thru Gettysburg and much of PA this afternoon. We could hear the thunder for an hour before they got to us and since we were at the Battlefield, it was eerie - sounded like cannons firing in the distance.

We were stuck at the bar we had lunch in for 3 1/2 hours because of the storms passing thru! Couldn't see to leave, there was hail, electricity kept going out - but we had a good time w/the bar maid & cook! (We were the only 2 customers in there). We were mistaken for Pennsylvanians! (Such a compliment in my book!)

I LOVE storms. Tornadoes fascinate me. As long as one doesn't hit my house...I love thunder and lightning and listening to heavy rain.

Love all the pics! Hope you're having a great time!

Fortunately or unfortunately, we walked out, lol! Vic kept saying it had the makings of the beginning of a Stephen King novel/movie! We had a great time.
