the sky in DC today just before tornado warning was cancelled

Today I rode the bus to downtown Washington DC just before the tornado warning was cancelled. This was the sky before the clouds dissipated (and *whew* -- I don't exactly want to be trapped in a metal box when a twister furiously rips out of the sky!)
Pennsylvania Avenue NW (across from
Department of Justice & Archives/Navy metro stop)
Forbidding clouds behind the basilica of the
National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
the biggest Catholic Church in the world
(it also serves as a church for Catholic University
which is across the street).
Low dark clouds as seen from bus
This was on North Capitol Street NW.
I liked the way the rooftops looked against the menacing sky.

The building in the second photo is the basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
