Storm Front Company

We just had a terrible line of thunderstorms roll through, incredibly swift and potent. I went for a ride this afternoon, and it was partly cloudy and pleasant. Perhaps a little windy. Not an hour after I got home, we were in a tornado warning area courtesy of the National Weather Service. Shortly after that, the storm began in earnest. A great deal of lightning, high winds, hail - it was terrific. I captured the radar image from Weather Underground and posted it below. The black dots are lightning strikes. The most amazing thing about the storm was not its intensity, but the speed with which it arrived. I didn't even see storm clouds on the horizon while I was out riding. The world never fails to be interesting.

I hope you don't mind, but I have some HTML questions for you. I trying to change the color of my header and place a picture there...how in the world did you do it? When ever I place a color in the header, nothing changes. It is getting a bit frustrating and I am losing my patience with it. Please help if you have the time.

Thanks!

THE MIND IS NOT A VESSEL TO BE FILLED BUT A FIRE TO BE KINDLED
