pictures were taken by Nathan Herron on his farm near Scott City,
Kansas during the summer of 1996. The sequence illustrates a
magnificent and fearsome monster that skirted from southwest to
northeast just north of Nathan's farm.
||Had the storm
tracked a few hundred yards to the south of its path, it would have
caused untold damage, and attracted the attention of the nearby
sheep. At this distance, the sheep are grazing
peacefully, seemingly indifferent to to the passing storm.
|Nathan is not as
indifferent as the sheep. Given the proximity of this nearest shot,
one might question how cousin Nathan was able to hold the camera so
steadily while running for safety. He might even lash himself
to the nearby tree for protection!
Thanks, cousin Nathan, for these
