WHAT WE DID: MAY 11TH 2015

What We Did is our weekly roundup of photos that WDDI staff and readers have taken over the past seven days. It's our excuse to talk about the weather, local sports teams, and the like. you can bet your ass that we're going to talk about the weather this week. We did have a flipping tornado, after all. And we aren't the only ones talking about the weather this (strangely) sunny morning. In fact, a good percentage of your tagged photos were weather-related because Denton is full of amateur storm chasers. So we hope you like dramatic skies and whatnot. 

If you'd like to be included in What We Did, tag your images with #WDDI on Instagram, and check back here next Monday. As always, we're limited in the photos we can post, but we encourage you to search the hashtag #WDDI and check out all of the other awesome photos that were posted that we were unable to post on the blog. Click the images below to be led back to the photographer's Instagram page. Have a great week!
