AWESOME! I like #3 the best, with the Tornado Green sky! (I grew up in the midwest, and my grandma used to always say that!) I also liked the funnel cloud trying to form but being sucked up into the main updraft. Great examples.

The northern part of the state had a lot of damage, still a lot of power outages.  Measured 1.57 in of rain over the course of the storm - several hours.  There wee a series of "fronts" that rolled through.  From a weather perspective - really cool!  From a living perspective - pretty scary.
