Last night was a wild one on the DelMarVa Peninsula. Severe thunderstorms with high winds rolled across the Chesapeake Bay last night and early this morning. We were awakened at about 0300 when tornado warning set off our phones. We were in the middle of a watch box until about 0700 so needless to say we didn't get much sleep with Winnie rocking and rolling. It reminded me of the night we spent on the Texas coast a couple of years ago riding out Tropical Storm Bill, only this time we weren't flooded at high tide. No pictures of the storm this time.

The last couple of days have been cloudy and wet, but Saturday after the rain passed I was able to get out for some photography of the area and fly the drone. One thing about this part of the Peninsula is there are spectacular sunsets. Every evening it has been a little different but colorful. Hope you enjoy the images as much as we did the real thing.

The sun's out this morning, but it's pretty windy. We'll be leaving this morning and heading north to the Chincoteague area. I'm not looking forward to wrestling with Winnie in these winds.
