Goodbye Summer ...
Click to enlarge.
Another severe weather season has come and gone, and unlike the wild weather that plagued the country during the early weeks of Spring, our severe weather season was quite (unfortunately for us storm chasers) less than spectacular.
Sure we had some great and photogenic storms and i got some amazing shots this season, but this year we had a unusually cool summer.
We still have plenty of warm weather ahead and our secondary severe storm season ( as powerhouse cold fronts begin to sweep down from Canada and collide with moist Gulf air) and is something I always look forward to every year ( once I went storm chasing on Halloween) but for the most part our severe weather season is all but over.
Overt the next few weeks I will be posting some of my photos i took this severe season, so check back often. Once that has been done, look for fall foliage and then snow scenes, if we have any this year.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog and will visit it often.

A small but beautiful thunderhead popped up just before dusk north of Amarillo, almost a wave goodbye to summer.
It was a good one.
