The rest of 2010

I'm bad at best of. . . I'd rather have new!

Panoramic of previous blog pic.

Leftovers of a severe thunderstorm at old lookout peak at I-235 and 25th.

I miss lightning.

Loved the saucer shape this storm anviled out to.

2nd season's only tornado warned storm.  The left side of this produced baseball (some claim up to softball) size hail.  One large stone found out in a field 3 hours after the storm was short of the state record by 1/2".

Found out my wife didn't see the double rainbow guy video, so she thought I went insane saying "Double Rainbow!" and "What does it mean?".

Harvest Full moon at Midnight.  Couldn't sleep.

Happy 2011 and may we hear thunder in the new year.

More 2010

Early evening storm off to the south of Wichita.

and sometimes, I just like sunsets.

More of 2010

One of the hail storms in Wichita this year.  This Squall line built lazily in early April and ended up dumping hail on the East side of Wichita for nearly an hour.  I caught this 180 degree capture before heading to class.  Unfortunately, it hit while in class.

Ah, Lightning.  I swore I watched streamers rise in the field in front of me.

The big May 10th storm.  They cancelled a day of River Fest for this and ultimately decided to move the festivities to June (good idea).  No solid tornado, but we did see rotation aloft and spinning wheat.  Lack of afternoon heating kept this killer at bay.  It roughly hit Wichita during rush hour.  This monster was made up of 20+ photographs and proved to be a nightmare to merge.

Solstice Eclipse

Had a few issues with clouds, camera settings, and cold batteries, but all in all it was awesome to watch . . . and tell stories of the Mayan Calender.

More of 2010

Also from late January.  I've always told myself in a big pea-soup fog I wanted pictures of the Catholic church in Bel Aire.
  • Second shot by the traintracks at Oliver and K-254.  Just happened to drive by and look over.
