Here's my entry.

Took this a couple of years ago on the way to the station just out of Morgan. It is a couple of mini "twisters", not shown too well with this camera but its in the centre of the shot and slightly to the left is one that has already broken up.

Here's my contribution to this challenge.  After spending weeks in freezing Europe (-5 to -20 every day), I thought a snow photo is most appropriate.  It was actually snowing moderately when I took this shot.

This was temp as displayed in the boganmobile when I got home from work today. :)

Nothing spectacular as far photography is concerned, but it is extreme weather.  Peaked at 46 while driving home.
