Morning stroll around the woods by our camp and found some love shacks.
Bit of deckchair rhyddums (video to follow once we rerecord due to planes)
Then onto the road to head south. On the way we meet a short but freaky storm.
Parked up overlooking the Vättern lake. Due to the storm there have been some crazy waves.
Waffles with Greek yogurt, maple syrup, lemon curd and brown cheese while watching the sun go down. Such bliss.
Behold the Great Devil.
Yesterday I wrote a post detailing my trip to Dillon Nature Center and my subsequent 8 hour storm chase. This was the first of three tornadic behemoths that I would track that evening. Developing just outside of Buhler, KS, this monstrousity would go on to pummel Wichita and the surrounding towns before finally running out of steam somewhere in Southern Oklahoma almost 24 hours later.
This particular storm was very memorable to me for two reasons: it was the very first (and only, to date) storm chase that I ever livestreamed, and it maintained a distinctive "Devil's Horns" look for nearly an hour, which only fueled the overwhelming sense of foreboding that permeated the atmosphere as the storm made it's approach. This storm took an unusually long time to build, which usually results in cells like this stalling and losing power. But there was plenty of energy to feed this beast on a 95+ degree day in late July, and the result was one of the most powerful storm outbursts of the entire year for the midwest.
Stay tuned for more updates about my storm adventures this summer, and also stay tuned for the first posts of this year's "Photo For You" Challenge. The latter will be posted starting this Monday, with winners posted on Friday!
