Storms, tornadoes and rainbows

It was a bizarre storm we had last night. One of many crazy storms we have had of late. This time I was surprised to see that tornadoes actually hit here in Southern Ontario. It was like watching a film through the window as I listened to the storm watch coverage. Colours and light reflected the weather which changed from clear to grey. A huge bunch of colourful helium balloons escaped into the sky... I didn't get my camera out in time. Then it turned from wildly torrential, to bright and yellow, then a rainbow appeared scooping across the CN Tower and then it was clear and normal again. All within minutes. I'm saddened to hear of the tornado damage and the death of an 11 year old boy. Am listening to McGuinty discuss the damage right now.

Those are amazing pictures! It looks extremely scary.
It is very sad that one little boy lost his life. Your second picture seems to be saying that despite the bad things, everything going to be ok.
