Yo Ryan, that's EXCELLENT! I would have had to change my pants...

Jeff - hard to get a good pic when it's not backlit, but yours is definitely up to par!

DLKAPA - good shot of a tornado for educational purposes. A hanging cloud does not a tornado make; all you need is circulation at ground level, and obviously there is some in your pic or the debris wouldn't have created the visible shape!

Are you guys in Skywarn or just lucky/nuts (to be out for a shot and not get caught in it)?

I was also out shooting, however, distance and houses (and lack of zoom) hintered my experience...

However, I was standing next to a light pole when a REALLY big lightning bolt hit in the East at some distance, and it sent a big, loud buzzing sound all the way through the light pole I was standing next to... After that, me, myself, and I voted on going elsewhere...

I myself am just 1 part lucky and about 9 parts nuts. The first part, the luck, was the storm popping up right where I live.

The nuts part was standing outside, in the rain, lightning all around and very close, on top of a hill, Shooting pictures with a digital camera.  Nuts

I saw one today too! Brings back memories... I haven't seen a tornado since 1996 when I left Oklahoma and my storm chasing days behind.

I was just leaving Front Range Airport before 4:00pm this afternoon and saw the stuff going on to the east. I drove down Hwy 36 toward Bennett and Kiowa and that's when I saw the storm near Strausburg with a brief and weak tornado touchdown. Was only an F0, but still a rare sight to see near Denver...

Man I miss my chasing days...  Sad

I had an F0 go right past my house in New York... after having lived in the Midwest for ten years.

Now I'm back near KCLE and I monitor Skywarn on my scanner. It's usually not very exciting, but you never know...

Funniest thing, about 15 minutes ago this guy from 7news calls me and asks me where I took the photo and background crap like that, then he tells me that tomorrow they would be sending a camera crew to my house to see what the scene looks like then, I guess sort of a during/after comparison.

Then he calls me and he tells me that there was a miscommunication and basically nevermind.

Darn, almost had my 15 minutes of fame  Nuts

It's pretty funny how the media over-reacts to an event like this... These are the same people that position 5 reporters around the city to bring you live coverage of the light snow falling.

I was down in Colorado Springs with a client when I saw the storm heading to the north east. I started up I-25 when the emergency warning sounded on the radio and told me that I was basically on it's (tornado's) tail. While coming down the hill near Larkspur, the funnel cloud I shot rose up from behind the ridge in the photo. I think it had just touched down in Castle Rock and was leaving the area. It moved kind of slow for a bit and I considered chasing it to the east a bit, but then I decided not to press my luck.

What was really cool was the numerous cloud to cloud lightning that was going on. That, was the real show.

I was reading my book at work, and this guy was watching the Weather Channel... and I saw this photo and it said Ryan Richter underneath. I was like, damn dude, this guy is ripping it up!

Nice work, Ryan, keep it up.

I am kind of glad that I don't live on the plains and live in Littleton. DLKPA, United, great pics of the storm. I wasn't really aware of how big the storm was until they did the emergency broadcast thing right during Around the Horn and PTI (not showing any lightness to the situation). After that, I kept checking 9news and Fox31 (which I dont understand why they cut coverage short). Its kind of weird that my house and neighborhood, which is right next to Dakota Ridge (if you guys know where that is) didn't get any rain or hail and just got little rumblings in the sky and gray clouds, but I guess that is how weather works sometimes.

It is starting to look like it might be a repeat of yesterday. It is getting very dark over here by my house, wonder what's happening on the plains right now.

Nothing to worry about today, unless you live south and east of Colorado Springs. There is a small cell near Roxborough SP that went severe briefly, but only for winds exceeding the severe criteria.

It's just going to be cold and cloudy in Denver for the rest of the day and tomorrow. Welcome to Seattle.  Smile

I was checking the NOAA website for weather and noticed severe weather out in that neck of the woods, pretty interesting. Also, if anyone wants to go stormchasing sometime, I'm open Big grin.

lol, pouring rain now and lots of lightning. So much for just cold and cloudy. Had some pea sized hail earlier.

This morning when I went to get the paper, it reminded me of Seattle, which, BTW I am coming upto next weekend for a few days.

It did remind me of Seattle as well... maybe Portland.

Not very bad weather. I was lucky to was, wax, buff, clean, the car as well as wash all of the windows and put RainX on them...

The water just flows right off and the car is clean!
