Twin Tornadoes

It’s Tornado season in the mid-west, and besides the death and destruction that comes to people who despite all rational thought, still make their homes in Tornado Ally and then complain when their houses are destroyed, comes storm chasers.  Yes, ever since Twister romanticized storm-chasing, it’s been a cool point of photographs and videos over the years, but it’s usually not worth the risk.  Don’t be an idiot, I won’t force you to move out of this area, but I would encourage it.

That being said, take a look at this photo from Kelly DeLay:

Two Tornados

Two tornadoes from one super cell.  He claims it’s the shot of a lifetime, I don’t know if I agree with him though, with the advent of digital cameras, and the risk takers I mentioned above, more and more people will be documenting these super cells, and as such, I think we’ll begin to see things like this more often.  Don’t let it fool you though, it’s totally Global Warming’s fault, not the overwhelming amount of more data being recorded now then 50 years ago.
