I absolutely LOVE when I see a “SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING” via The Weather Channel show up on my phone! I’ll often go sit on my patio and watch it roll in. In fact, for this one, multiple neighbors also came outside to enjoy Mother Nature’s show.
The one thing I’ll say, though, is my camera did NOT capture that thunderstorm darkness at all. Overall, I like the camera trick. I wish in that moment, however, that you could have experienced that thunderstorm darkness with me. Just so you know, it got soooo dark that the outside lights came on! It went from a sunny day to dark enough that the EXTERIOR LIGHTS TURNED ON!
