Wow.......

Things to do upon witnessing storms...

1- Admire the raw power.
2- Witness nature at work.
3- Wet Pants
4- Run like hell.

I don't think those were taken in TX, either. How can I tell? I don't see anyone in a pickup truck riding into the storm with a camera trying to get close-ups.

Thanks for the pics. All ways been found of meteorology.

Yow! Never seen anything like that!

Awesome pics..

...., but they wern't taken in Australia. Aussies drive on the LH side of the road, like in the UK. The road signs in the pics are set up for driving on the RH side.

So I wonder where these pics were taken?

A co-worker sent these photos to me. The email said they were from Hurricane Katrina, as it came ashore. I don't believe that though.

THose pictures have been posted all over the place they even showed up in a Roanoke Times article. They said that the pictures were taken in Nebraska.

I've seen stuff like that a few times in north dakota.

I got those pics a few days ago, in one of those damn chain-forwarded emails, only the original author claimed they were Katrina pics
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 5:45:02 AM EDT
From snopes


These images are actually photographs of tornadoes and other extreme weather phenomena taken by storm chaser Mike Hollingshead in Nebraska and Kansas during the summer months of 2002 and 2004. Some of these photos are viewable on the 2004 Digital Photos section of his web site (scroll about halfway down the page).

All those pictures (other than the last one which could be from anywhere) look like Nebraska. The type of fences, the road ditches, the fields and roads sure do look like NE.


I've always liked this pic of Nebraska weather from 1989 in Furnas County.

Uhhhh...that's the the smartest thing to do.

I have a couple pictures very similar to the first one. I took them in my backyard years ago in Missouri. That was a hell of a storm.

Everyone of those pics comes from Extreme Instability.

None are from Australia.

What exactly is a "fuck off big storm" and what does a storm have to do to become one??

Nope, the lighting is pretty damn consitant with storm photos if the photog knows what they are doing.

Damn those are sweet pics. New wall paper!

I saw a front come in like that not long after I took a job as a divemaster in the Florida Keys. The front came through FAST from the north-northwest while we had divers down. The only thing I could do was secure gear, ride it out and help divers get on the boat as they came up. The wind at & behind the front was going 90 degrees to the wind in front of the front, and very strange to watch the waves change and get confused.

It was an interesting day!

I find the pictures beautiful. It's the destruction that I don't want to see.

Nice examples of supercells.

I was in rural Northern IL in June of this year and saw a storm roll over the top of my sister-in-law's house that looked like pic #1. They live out in the country NW of a small town and we had all local LEO's out there watching it - Sheriff and local city police. I couldn't believe a tornado didn't drop out of it. The temp must have dropped 20 degrees in 2 minutes - from like 90 to 70.
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 12:14:14 PM EDT


I actually felt a lot better thinking that shit was taking place in another country.
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 12:23:46 PM EDT
This is really weird. I know Mike Hollingshead. LOL. And yep, those are definately his pics. Mike has to be the most stolen from storm photographer ever. His pictures have turned up in countless places for years. I have seen his storm pics even used to describe weather in Europe and in Asia. LOL. Crazy.

BTW, the pics do look cool but I have several of his stormchasing highlight videos here that he makes at the end of each season and they are just as good. Photos such as that low hanging wallcloud are indeed awesome, but seeing them in motion is even more spectacular.
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 12:29:46 PM EDT
it's from the Aussie's, if you look really careful, there are kangeroos!
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 1:19:47 PM EDT
I've seen this mentioned and debunked somewhere else, it is from a US guy's stormchasing site, they had a link. Nothing at all to do with Katrina. Still impressive nonetheless.
....
On the other hand, did you hear that they found a GIANT SQUID in the hurricane Katrina storm?!?!!? ;D

That's what I miss about Kansas. Being able to see the weather in the distance. You could see lighting all way from the ground up into the clouds.

Between the trees and the hills here in southern Ohio you can't see anything until it's right up on you.
