It wasn't swirling and it wasn't a greenish yellow color, but, boy, this cloud sure did scare me today. The temperature dropped as I drove right under the massive cloud. A white wall of water followed about a quarter mile behind the cloud and brought another torrential downpour to the western side of the Thumb.
This cloud was photographed on M-142 between Pigeon and Bad Axe at 1:38 pm today, Monday, July 8. Thunderstorms with large amounts of rain have hit parts of Huron County since Saturday. Bad Axe had 5-6 inches of rain on Saturday afternoon. Ditches and creeks are running high today, Monday.
