LOL I think it was Confucius who said "He who is drowned is not troubled by the rain."

sorry, not being facetious here just a little whimsical. It doesn't mean to off yourself, but to totally immerse yourself in whatever you do in case some might think otherwise.

Sounds like a bad storm. Did you have any wind damage to your place?

We had lots of large branches down and lost some shingles on
the roof of the garage. We were lucky!

Oh yea, we lost the picnic table, broken legs.

Don't let the royal purple go to your head. Maybe I'm a little late on my warning

It blew my patio furniture and a very heavy bar-b-que grill right off my deck, took part of the tin roof off a shed and there was debris everywhere.
I'm out in the boonies so not sure what the neighbors look like, but it tore up jack around here...nothing that can't be fixed though and no absolute devastation.

I still need to get a gallon of tar for emergency prep. I have enough wood here to cover the windows if needed. The place I'm storing it will probably get sucked up by a twister.

I have experience about 4 hurricane's and let me tell you that when they were approaching just before it hits land the sky turns red. So it must be bad weather related.

It is hell you see coming from the west from you.
It has already hit here and its hot as hell.
Or the smoke from all those fires out west.
Saw that before.

thank you

Wife just got off the phone with her friend in WV and while the storm has passed according to weather channel radar power is out and they are going to bed early. I guess in the daylight more info about damage will come out but from what I heard it sounded really bad.

The weather will flare up again for WV around 4PM tomorrow with isolated t-storms so I guess anyone who was in the path of this one should keep a heads up on developing conditions tomorrow as well.

Thanks for the links guys and gals. Was a moment of awe there that had me wondering

The fires may very well have contributed to the strength of the storm. All the extra debris in the atmosphere as well as moisture from the water they've used to fight the fire could have certainly built up.

We had red skies in Pittsburgh this evening. It finally rained with a little thunder and lightning and some close by areas had some higher winds, then the red sky.

no the clouds themselves were purple and i mean it was nothing like this. it was as if u took a crayon and painted white clouds with light purple paint. i have seen many sunsets and sunrises and this was the first time i ever saw the the clouds like this.

It's something called Rayleigh Scattering (which is also why the sky is blue). With the increased water vapor forming the clouds (water being a polar molecule), the refraction of the light produces a purple hue. Of course with the extreme temperatures, additional particles in the atmosphere most likely from the massive fires to the west and other factors, the purple looks more extreme then what we're accustomed to. The water droplets are larger since the dust and ash particles are larger and they aren't as "packed together" so we get more sunlight coming through than we normally do with the dark gray clouds associated with thunderstorms, giving us the purple hue instead of just gray due to the sunlight being more "blocked" by the closeness of the molecules in the dark gray clouds.

I took a couple of pics earlier, before the storm and then the sunset after. It was just a pretty bad line of thunderstorms that rolled through and finally cleared right at sunset. The sky was a brilliant pink and purple but nothing abnormal in my opinion. Excuse the pics as they were the best i could get using my phone and I hope this works because its been a good while since I posted any images here!

A friend of mine took this picture in Texas on Tuesday. There was a storm coming through the area at the time. He was really tripping out about the colors outside and said the camera just doesn't do it justice.

We get skies like that in AZ from time to time. Normally means a lot of particles in the air.

I have also seen some pretty purple sunsets and the occasional sunrise.

How can you conclude it is somehow different if you haven't seen it for yourself?
The sky can be every color of the rainbow. It's normal, no matter what color red you might perceive it to be. If you do a search at Google image using "red sky" there are 1,460,000,000 hits.
