The incoming storm...

While at the condo in Orange Beach, Al. this storm cloud was rolling in.

I check the radar and it was coming right for us.

As it neared the shore, it started to back out again.

Then i started back towards us and just as it hit the shore it took a 90 degree turn and went down the coast.,

Storms do not act like that in  Minnesota.

I haven't lived near the Gulf of Mexico, but I've often found it fascinating how storms can be born in Africa, find their way across the Atlantic, and manage to use the Gulf as a bowling alley in their delight!

Good morning William.  No one wants to rain on your parade, not even Mother Nature.

Hi William.  This sounds like an unusual storm for Florida as well.

Good morning William. Did you take a picture. The word picture is pretty good though.

Unlike you to forget a picture...There must be another glitch happening

That's very interesting. Sometimes we see storms move around and swirl around due to the Grand Mesa.

That must have been strange to watch.   I don't believe I've ever heard of such a thing.
