Tornadoes are rare in my area. The last one was 20 years ago, and 10 miles away. I didn't get to see it, but the destruction was awesome.

Great thread and pictures, i love storms, severe weather and everything, since I like photography im waiting for a thunderstorm to come at night so I can do some long exposures and get shots of lightning, knowing my luck that wont happen hehe

the coolest t-storms I like are during snowstorms, the snow turns the lightning purple and the thunders sound is dampened by the falling snow giving it an echo effect, I love them.
