Right Before the Tornado Warning

On Tues I was on highway 1-25 headed to Denver, CO and I had just passed Pueblo. I had never seen clouds this close to touching down. I didn't know they had issued a tornado warning prior to pulling over to take this photo until we got hit with hail, heavy rain and wind. I couldn't see in front of me while driving so I exited the highway and was the first car to park under a bridge for shelter. It didn't take long for a other cars to do the same. We waited the storm out and we are all lucky to be safe.

 

I felt like a tornado chaser and now that I think about it was a little exciting! My son was very scared and excited at the same time.
