Beautiful and scary storm coming right this minute. Got some great shots before the lightning lit up my common sense.
I love these kind of clouds. Anyone out there know the science
behind how they are created? Right outside our back door.
Front edge as the sun was going down.
Okay, I know some of you ladies are going to chew me out for being
out in this stuff, but LOOK at that lowering! For you non-tornado alley folks,
that when a rotating center of clouds in a storm (this one really was not
very "tornadic" in reality), starts to tighten up and drop, the precursor to
a possible tornado (but not likely).
Most lowerings just skitter along for a little while and fall apart
which this one did. Look really close at the ground below the lowered clouds.
See the red dust (Oklahoma's version of dirt) getting sucked up into it?
Magnificent to see!
More to come. Heavy lightning now so the power will probably go out.
