On June 18, 2010, while visiting a friend at his farm about six miles West of Martelle, I noticed that a storm was fast approaching from the NW. After remembering that the windows in my house were wide open and that my dogs were outside in the yard, I decided I had better head home. When I arrived at the intersection of Ellison Rd and Highway #1 at about 5:30 PM, the awesome site of the incoming front caused me to stop and take a picture of it on my cell phone camera. After several shots on the camera, I then quickly got behind the wheel of my truck and headed South to my home in Mount Vernon. The incoming storm arrived at the exact same time as I did and began to toss leaves and small dead branches around in the air. I was driving at least 60 miles an hour after taking this picture which means the storm front was traveling approximately at that same speed.
