    Rodger,
    That's an understatement...those are downright scary...!

    Can we say...Run like H$%! :D

    PS...what's with the "walleye for the straight guys" thing...I hope that means what I think it does. ;) If so, who's manning the rest of the ship...???

    H&B - yep, we'll be out there, felt it necessary to contribute to your wallet. Shake and Sowbelly will be on the Jolly Roger
     
  5. Does anyone know the original source for those?

    I would really like to use them in some training I will be doing but need permission from the photographer.

    Thanks, those are some of the most amazing pictures I have ever seen.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen those pics before, and it was a year ago at least. That just doesn't look like Louisiana or Mississippi. Impresive pics though.

    I got the same email. I was wonmdering it thery wer elegit, but it seems like everyone thinks so. The one w/ the twisters in it scres the crap out of me. I am teriffied of tornados.
     
  10. Wow, those are some awesome photos. Those are pics of wall clouds of supercell tunderstorms, the part of the strom where tornados are spawned. Judging by the landscape and my travels, it looks alot like western Oklahoma/Texas panhandle in several of the pics. Hurricanes would not spawn these huge storms because the air aloft is not cold enough to allow for enough instability to get these storms up above 50K feet.

    Still, I'm glad you posted them, these are some of the best pics I've seen of these storms!!

    Those are amazing but probably fakes... just like the gator picture that was supposedly from N.O. but it was really from the congo over a year ago.

    They have been posted before for other storms. Here is the story on them.
    They were taken by Mike Hollingshead. Some are from his site. http://extremeinstability.com/2004.htm http://extremeinstability.com/photographypage.htm There are many awesome pictures in his albums.
    Here is the Snopes Urban legends explanation of the pictures. http://snopes.com/photos/natural/storm.asp
    Also check this Snopes page for other hoaxes and truths to the Katrina and Rita
    hurricanes. Including the croccodile and various fake charities.

  13. I figured they were fake because the corn in the first picture is that high when its 2 months old...most of the corn down that far south has been picked already
