Old Tornadoes are Scary!

Call me crazy, but every old photograph I see of a tornado, I find them fairly frightening. Pretty sure tornadoes have not evolved or learned to be any more friendly, probably just that grainy texture and the symmetrical vortices giving it that extra…’fear me’ feel.

Also featuring the first brave photographer to get one on film!

Little newer, but still scaring nightmares, the Ruskin, MS tornado of 1957


That testament can be seen here today in Joplin, MO. Now there is some speculation that this piece of wood entered a drainage pipe in the concrete, so maybe the force was not THAT strong. In turn, we can affirm tornadoes have some splendid accuracy. Right?

Why being below ground is sometimes the best choice during tornadoes.

Joplin had a close shave again as a tornadic cell passed north of the city just a day or so after the deadly EF-5. Slightly reminds me of Yazoo City, Miss of last year.

Enjoy a cool Saturday before the heat takes hold! The chance for some showers exists, before a system moves through on Saturday night. Temps for the Monday and Tuesday flirt with 90 before cooling down to the 70s once again. It also looks very pleasant for the rest of the week.
