A "Memorial" Day

Yesterday, Kimberly and I came home from her parent's cabin in Wisconsin to the sound of the weather radio going off, warning us we had about 15 minutes to batten down the hatches before a severe thunderstorm hit us. It was the worst one I've seen in 3 years out here in Minnesota. We watched a rain wrapped tornado pass about 3 miles south of us and then endured at least 15 minutes of severe hail, some stones as big as golf balls. Here are some pictures and videos. The damage pictures are from just west of where the tornado hit and the worst damage is, probably where the funnel cloud was just getting ready to touch down. In the very first picture, just to the right of the tree is the tornado. I watched the video this still was taken from frame by frame and that is definitely it:
