Artist's Description

While on my way to the Colorado, Oklahoma border on the 31st of May, I saw a strange looking segment of cloud hanging down from the main body of a large cell… I knew immediately that it was a wall cloud, but wasn’t sure if it was the same one I had been hearing about for the last two hours, that had been dropping tornadoes down from it.

The next thing I knew, it developed a set of fangs on either side, and I saw that there was a lot of motion going on. The next thing I knew a trunk started to swing down and suddenly there was this beautiful stovepipe vortex running along the ground far from where I was.

I put the pedal to the medal and was yelling at my brother who happened to be on the phone with me at that moment “I see a twister!!! I see a twister!!!” at which moment I abruptly hung up on him, pulled over and shot this photo. After doing so, I called him back up and had the pedal to the metal once more.

In order to get to this tornado, I had to pass through the scariest clouds / storm cell I had ever witnessed. It rained so hard, I could hardly see a car length in front of me. When I finally punched through, this tornado was in it’s final life phase and soon disappeared.

After I parked, a second tornado formed behind where this one was, and that’s the photograph I posted earlier today.
