Summer Storms in Windmill Country

Summer storms in windmill country have been dramatic today. A cold front swept across Huron County in mid afternoon. Between Elkton and Pigeon, the storm rose dramatically in swirls of clouds and sweeps of rain.

Thunderhead after towering thunderhead crossed Saginaw Bay, then marched east, headed toward the Verona hills and Lake Huron. Around 6 pm, my camera captured this image of the turbines and one huge cloud just north and east of Laker High School.

Along the Lake Huron coastline, violent winds tore down tree branches. My garden was hit hard. The red beets look like they were stepped over by the winds. The foliage on the tomatoes appears shredded, almost like it was hit by hail.

After days of hot and humid weather, the summer storms have arrived.
