Green & Mean
Today we had a big bad mean and green severe thunderstorm (complete with tornado warnings) tear through the east side of Amarillo. Although no confirmed tornados were spotted, it did do some damage, especially on the NE side near the airport.

I shot this photo from N. Western Street as I was racing to go pick up the daughter and grandkids. They live in a mobile home, and knowing what tornado magnets they are, i decided that it was best if I took them along on the chase.
The kids had fun, we were all a bit scared by the green monster bearing down on us, but all in all it turned out to be much meaner looking than it was - which was a good thing.
All post more pix later.
