On Monday I was sitting in the computer lab at school when I got an alert on my phone about a severe thunderstorm watch for Asheboro. I decided that since I wasn’t printing anymore I should probably put my prints and paper back in my mat locker in the studio before it started pouring down rain. When I was walking back from the studio I looked up and saw this monstrosity in the sky. I’m not sure how much I can actually stress how much I LOVE storms and the clouds that come with them. So of course when I saw this beautiful shelf cloud I completely freaked out. I practically sprinted back to the lab to grab my camera and then ran out the the front of the school to confront the the beast head on. I only got about 20 shots before I realized that the cloud was practically on top of me, and it was probably best to head back inside before my camera became a very expensive paper weight.
PSA: park closer to the building if it’s calling for rain or else you’ll be trapped at school until it stops pouring down rain. Also, shout out to Liz for the makeshift trash bag poncho.
