I took this skyshot on an afternoon in early spring 2011, when severe thunderstorms were in the forecast. Oklahoma skies are a cloudlovers paradise and a weather chasers dream come true! One of the first things you learn when you move here from somewhere else, is to keep your eyes to the sky and your channel tuned to the weatherman. We are very fortunate in this state to have the best meteorologists in the world! In fact one of the Okc news channels has the weatherman who developed Doplar radar as the chief meteorologist. So when they say stay "weather aware" today, we pay attention! They are not usually wrong! So anyway, on this day the storm towers started to build east of me, which normally means great pictures of the storm with the sun backlighting it as you see here. Storms here normally travel toward the south east, so if they start to build to the east of me I can be pretty sure they won't wreak their havoc anywhere close by. Of course I have learned that Oklahoma weather is nothing if not highly unpredictable! These particular storms turned out to be makers of large hail and high winds that caused quite a bit of damage in the Oklahoma city area, but all we got here at my place were some great photos!
