I drove to Colville this morning under a clear blue sky, but by the time I left work this afternoon at 2:00, dark billowing clouds were moving up the valley and blocking out the sun. The Emergency Broadcast System interrupted the radio program three times during my hour-long drive to announce severe thunderstorm warnings in various parts of Eastern Washington and North Idaho. The most dire warning seemed to center around Bonners Ferry where people were warned to stay indoors and keep away from windows. We saw some lightning on our drive and these magnificent clouds pictured here.
