So About That Wind (Photo Gallery)
When I wrote about the upcoming storm. I failed to mention or I suppose I didn't realize the wind was going to get wild. I hope you were prepared for it but either way, it seems nature had some redecorating plans.
I woke-up to my social media being flooded with gorgeous photos of people in the Tri-Cities and Tacoma area writing about how they had been jolted awake by thunder and through their blinds the sky was glowing.
Here is what the aftermath in Yakima, WA, and the surrounding areas is looking like. Feel free to add to our gallery by sending your photos via our app

Turn up the volume if you love the sounds of thunder and rain. Carey J was enjoying the view from her backyard as the storm rolled through Oregon.
Currently, parts of Selah are still without power.
The storm brought heavy rain, lightning and gusts of wind, according to the National Weather Service in Pendleton, Ore. Gusts of up to 67 mph were recorded in the Lower Valley, while a weather station at the Yakima Training Center recorded wind speeds at 59 mph, according to the weather service’s website.
It rolled through pretty quickly so hopefully, the cherry trees made it through.
I will leave you with this. From the wonderful weatherman Mike Mccabe who posted this photo of a Mammatus cloud, apparently he has only seen a cluster like this twice in his lifetime!
