Around 6:45 Sunday night, my boyfriend’s phone went off, alerting us that a funnel cloud was spotted in League City, which is where we live. The funnel cloud was only about 2 miles from our house give or take.
Although it kind of freaked me out, I couldn’t help but want to go chase it. We waited a little too long, not leaving for another 40 minutes or so. Initially when we heard the news, we stepped outside and the sky looked absolutely crazy. No matter what direction you looked the weather was different. We couldn’t take our eyes off of it.
This picture was taken after I finally convinced Matt to drive me around so I could click away. While we were driving around, I was in awe at how quickly the weather can change. The clouds and sunset made for some beautiful colors, however, the feeling throughout town was very eerie. Fortunately, there was only minor wind damage.
Here are a couple other photos I captured:
This past week has been hectic for the city of Houston. Many homes have been flooded and roadways are still standing with water. Fortunately, most of the coastal areas in southeast of Houston haven’t had any flooding issues.
This photo was taken on Tuesday morning in Seabrook, TX. As you can see, a storm was halfway blowing in. On the right it was raining, on the left the sun was fighting to shine. Our weather has always been unpredictable down here. One minute it’s storming, the next it’s 85 degrees and sunshine.
Donations and volunteer opportunities are available for the flood victims through Red Cross.
Last week I had the pleasure of shooting the crew that makes up South Beat Music Texas, also known as “SBMT”. SBMT consists of six DJ’s from the Bay Area of Houston. They all DJ in different bars and clubs throughout Houston, anywhere from Midtown, to Galveston. They each bring a different style to the table, (no pun), offering a variety of vibes being brought to the clubs they claim.
After gaining some notoriety since the group first started back in 2011, they’ve now not only gained a huge fan base, booked Mardi Gras and SXSW, but they’ve also created an app, kind of like Pandora, to keep their fans connected and blasting their mixtapes any time, anywhere! The app is simply called “SBMT”, and any smart phone is available to download it, which you totally should! The app offers different mixtapes, for any kind of genre preference. “Fiesta Gigante” is the latin inspired mixtape, and my personal favorite, the “HTX Radio” is a mixtape filled with that H-town Rap us locals know and love. Guaranteed, you want to hear it, they’ve got it. These guys never disappoint.
