Yesterday afternoon, we were storm chasers, chasing after hurricane Irene.
We drove out to Tybee to see the effects of the storm off the coast. The bottom dropped as soon as we pulled in a parking space. We waited a few minutes for the rain to slow down, and then started to walk towards the pier. As we were walking towards the pier the wind started picking up & rain started falling again. We ran under the pier so we could get a good look at the storm. Here are some pictures that we took.
I love this picture. If you look carefully you can see that it is raining sideways.
Just a random guy waiting for the surfing conditions to get just right.
We are so thankful that hurricane Irene did not hit Savannah & that we did not have to evacuate. We did enjoy going to watch the storm roll past Tybee & pray that where hurricane Irene is headed that she play nice & leave all the beaches & coastal areas as she found them.
Have a great weekend.
