I think weather photos of this quality really bring the seriousness of the situation home to us. Sometimes we seem to not give it much attention unless it is our own backyard. This magnificant photograph certainly brings it close to home via the internet. Thank you for sharing the importance of this possibly very dangerous weather event with everyone. It is truly a beautiful and magnificant picture!!
