Sky Watch on Friday

Skywatch Friday starts its seventh year today.
Some of us are posting our best Skywatch post ever to celebrate the anniversary and to honor and remember Klaus the man who started this meme and who is now no longer with us.



Some days ago we had a gale  as we never have seen before. The weather-forecast gave a red alert warning. We were lucky, for my house was not damaged. I even didn't notice that there was such a storm going on, until I went out to check the windows of my daughter's house, which is a five minutes walk from my house. The rest of the country suffered more damage sadly enough. In the UK, France, Belgium, Germany and Denmark,  there were also people suffering by this gale and also casualties.

 Photos from people all over the country:

I'm so glad you were safe, Wil. I didn't know you were all so badly impacted. My daughter lives in Illinois and was able to avoid the tornado that leveled the town of Washington, Illinois. It seems storms are even more terrible these days.
