"Was that a... giant flying humpback whale?!" - Awesome reader pics from last night's storm

We've talked quite a bit this summer about how, despite the unusual amount of rain we've been dealt, the evening skies have been nothing short of spectacular!

I mean, does anyone remember sunsets quite as consistently brilliant as the nightly nature shows we've been treated to this July and August?

Last evening offered a different kind of display. It came in the form a massive, dark rolling cloud sequence (I ain't no meteorologist, obviously) that preceded a heavy, albeit brief, downpour.

"Ominous" might be too soft a word to describe the scene. Yet, it passed relatively quickly, and after the rain, Mother Nature still found time to sneak in another fine sunset.

As always, our readers were on the ball, snapping and sending in pics of the clouds from all angles. Below is a sampling; we have a full album, which we'll continue to add to, over on our Facebook page.
