April 14, 2009: Hiawatha Tornado

This is an old picture from 2005, but I hadn't seen it so I suppose at least some of you haven't either.

It was taken in Hiawatha, Kansas, and shows the power, scary power, of a tornado.



A couple weeks ago I was startled by high wind, thunder, and nickel size hail that made a hell of a racket on the roof.
Having the shades drawn, I had no idea what it was and wondered if it was a tornado. Then I realized I've never heard a tornado,
only people describing it as sounding like a freight train, so I wouldn't be able to tell if it was... until it was too late.
Glad we don't get them here very often.

Actually it's one of a series of pictures taken that day which can be found here.

I enhanced the picture, and look what I discovered flying amid the debris!

It's amazing what some folks will do for a good picture. Would you stand there with that flying lumberyard coming at you?

That tornado picture thrills me, in a very sick and twisted way.

Thanks Shel. (It's a movie quote from Twister Shawnee.)

And I want to know why the white car in the link is driving towards the thing - doesn't look like a typical storm chaser.

Oh. A pop culture reference I didn't get! I saw the movie a long time ago.

As to the car, it's probably some crazy person, like me.
