First storm photos of 2009
Coming home from Waco, I was briefly inside a tornado watch - which is rare February event. Although I didn't chase today, I was really, really tempted to - especially when thunderstorms began to build up all around near Eastland, Texas.
Unfortunately work dictated that I get back home and I had already driven 250 miles of a 500 mile trip and didn't relish the thought of getting back to Amarillo in ragged shape.
i did however take a few photos of the gathering storms and for a brief moment it felt like May in February. This shot was looking southeast toward the towering Q near Stamford, Texas. Nothing tornadic, but pretty none-the-less.
