Weather Education

Its been an unbelievable month for weather so far. Ive never spent so much time in my basement.

Gone are the days when the most I had to complain about was constant rain. Sure - the Scottish weather is not something to be desired if you plan on outdoor activities - although somehow we managed to make them fit in. But having the sea within 60+ miles to the east and west of you keeps the weather pretty consistent and placid.

So to be experiencing the tremendous forces of nature that have recently run through this part of Nebraska has forced me to rethink what I count as "bad weather". The sky is usually so clear and blue out here, then all of a sudden a storm appears. And at least 2 times in the last couple weeks, I thank God that we have only experienced these storms, and not what was at at their centers -

Im glad I wasn't in that car!

I can't help but think this photographer might have been in trouble

As if a the tornado wasn't causing enough damage...

cool photos! Yeah it sure has been exciting around here lately, weatherwise. I'll take it over bland and rainy and dreary any day though.
