Yesterday we drove home from the beautiful mountains in Colorado to super hot Texas – a 13 hour drive.  We were somewhere in West Texas in the middle of corn fields on a 2 lane highway when we came upon a huge thunderstorm.  At first we thought it was kinda cool and I started snapping pics of the crazy looking clouds, sheets of rain and sky-to-ground lightning we were seeing in the distance.

Then we realized this giant cloud that looked like it could drop a funnel down at any moment was headed in our direction.  Joey picked up the pace and we sped right out of there.  It was a little intense for a minute, especially when we saw what may or may not have been the beginnings of a tornado.  Not sure if it ever developed, we didn’t stick around long enough to see.  This was definitely the most exciting part of our all day driving extravaganza.
