Wicked Weather

We don’t normally get tornadoes around here but there have been some close calls this year, so when I saw the sky today as I was driving to my sister’s, I wondered what I was driving into… tell me this doesn’t look like a supercell!

I managed to get a few decent shots of lightning, although it was tricky – like looking for shooting stars and deciding what portion of the sky to look at.

And the whole time I was thinking, it would be TYPICAL of me to get flung to hell and back by a tornado because I was caught up in taking pictures of it! (Just a few nights ago I had a dream about seeing a tornado, and thought “Where’s my camera,” and then, “No, I’m dreaming…”)

  1. These are some great photos of lightning. I’ve tried so hard to get pictures of lightning and am never successful. I also live in Massachusetts…in Springfield to be exact. I would have agreed with you 100% that tornadoes are unheard of in this state, until we got struck by one a few months ago in this area, lol. Anyhow, great nature photos. Lightning is always amazing.
