HOLY CATS!! It sure *does* look like a monster all right! What a photo capture, but what tragedy for so many people. Congratulations on this being on World View this week---it's doubly striking in that huge picture format.

Now THAT is an angry cloud! We never get anything approaching these theatrics in *yawn* Northern Virginia. Actually, we were under a tornado watch this afternoon - it all fizzled out before the cell(s) reached us (thankfully). So... I envy you and I don't envy you folks in OK, KS, MO and the rest of tornado alley. Great capture, and congrats on the AC!

This sends shivers! This is one thing I do NOT miss. I have heard and seen the freight train sounding, tornadic clouds as a child. UTTER FEAR as it lifted over our trailer and spared us.

Thanks! The storm was huge. Even with a 10 mm lens it swallowed the frame.
