Thanks Julia, Katy & Heidrun. I would definitely rather be the one chasing & if I hadn't had cold stuff that needed to get into the freezer I think I would have hung around for more pictures!

No I didn't get too wet. As I left the grocery store and traveled south I watched it in my rear view as it came from the north. It reminded me of a giant tidal wave all white & frothy against a dk blue background.
