Spring has sprung. Fifteen confirmed tornadoes in Kansas last evening, most about an hour away.

Shit kicked off again today around 5, had a shower go thru with 60-70 mph winds and dime sized hail. Dropped a half-inch in 15 minutes. Stripped a lot of leaves off my gingko trees.

Three different tornadoes rolling to the SW of us right now. Dry here for now. Storms supposed to kick off again around midnight with 60 mph winds and hail during the night, sometimes around 3am.

Round three will light off at about the same time tomorrow and again, round four, Wednesday afternoon.

Gonna be a couple of long nights.

Is there anyplace in the country where you can avoid all natural disasters from the weather? Oregon?

Get out now, when you can, Lance! Did you just read the above?

Sucked into the sky, you AND your truck? I'm told it happens all the time?

It's BUCOLIC, TORNADO DISASTER, BUCOLIC, TORNADO DISASTER, BUCOLIC, etc.

Your luck won't hold forever!

Yeah, Arizona may have it's faults, and yes we do get some wind / dust storms but I've never wished that I lived underground.

Spring in Kansas is like a rollercoaster ride. Few days of nice weather than something comes alon g that'll scare the bat shit out of you. I will say this to anyone who has never seen one in real life. Nothing in the world says "ominous" or "power" like seeing a real tornado. Something that big, from the clouds to the ground, sends chills up and down your spine and just makes you say, "Holy shit." Even the storms that produce them offer some great visuals. This pic was taken near Wichita last night. You won't see this with Arizona heat or California earthquakes.

 -

Gotta admit, I was a bit concerned as that storm came in last night. Had what's called a shelf cloud stretching from the SW clear across to the north of my house. The entire storm was moving easterly, but just beneath the cloud base were what are called "scud clouds", and they were going to the west, to the north, everywhere showing a lot of instability in the base. Not where you're gonna see a tornado spin up, but usually means big winds, and they were spot on.

That picture is a mesocyclone - the entire central structure of a supercell thunderstorm. Three years ago when the EF3 that hit north of me passed by, the entire mesocyclone was spinning counterclockwise and it was probably 6 or 7 miles wide. The rotation pulls air in and three miles from my house, it was creating an inflow wind of nearly forty mph in my backyard. Worth the time if you ever get the chance to chase tornadoes.

Two of my favorites of the same event. This roll cloud appeared north of the KState football stadium as KSU was getting ready to play University of Central Florida a few Septembers ago. Had the Florida folks concerned that the apocalypse was here. Locals just thought, "Shit, I'm gonna need another jacket". Looks photoshopped, but these are real pics.

And you lived to tell about it? Get out, Lance! You are tempting fate! The last time I saw special effects like that was Independence Day!

But, it might be a "Mini Me" situation, however, the state of Arizona has a little event almost every year called "The Monsoons" and it will make you wonder just what the hell is going on? Mexico is to blame, hard to believe odd ball weather rolls up mostly from the Sea of Cortez. It can be quite a show....but not many people have died of it. Well, I take that back, if they do, it's from drowning in a "dry wash".
And, seems to me, I get the feeling of being surrounded by thunder and lightning. Weird shit, and the local yokels laugh it off.

Good hunting. El Bee

Yes, we do love our Monsoon Season !!!!
I sat on the patio one evening and counted 80 flashes of lightening in 60 seconds. The sky was rockin' & rolling big time and by the time it was over, the dog needed therapy.

Crap! We only have little weather disturbance's here compared to that.

When I was 4 years old we were traveling back to Iowa. Had a station wagon pulling small travel trailer(would have been early 60's). Pulled over to spend the night folks, baby brother and I in travel trailer and grandmother sleeping in the back of station wagon. the trailer started rocking big time and I screamed mom pulled out of the hammock. If the trailer hadn't been attached to the car that night we would have went with the wind. Drove into Mitchel SD next morning and the town was cut in half. Still remember the motel was cut in half and could look into the rooms. Straw pushed into power poles.

Thanks but no thanks.

OK 👍
I get it and I agree.
Ferrari’s, Christi Brinkley, grandma on the roof, pass the sausage, a 3 second view of the Grand Canyon, JOHN CANDY! And the station wagon almost stole the show after they brought his old car out with a forklift, just friggin’ hilarious!

Need I go on? No. I’ve seen it several times and enjoyed it every time.

Good hunting. El Bee 🐝

Edit: forgot that poor little dog! Those shoes! and the 1980’s “SWAT Team” an-inside joke if ever I saw one

We love your monsoons, too. They train moisture from the southwest which tends to disrupt the weather patterns that create tornadoes for us. At this time of the year, drier air comes in from the southwest, rolls over the Rockies and cascades down into the Plains states where it rides up and over moisture-laden air coming in from the Gulf to the southeast. The dry air cools, falls down through the Gulf air as it warms and creates a rolling cylinder of air. Get the right conditions and that cylinder goes on its end and the result is a tornado. Saw one near here once where the rolling cylinder dropped out of the cloud base and you could see it going forty miles to the southwest. At the tail end, it disappeared back into the clouds and a few miles further on, a wickedly whipping rope tornado dropped down. To say it was cool would be an understatement.

Three years ago May 25, we had the last tornado - a long-track EF3/4 that traveled most of 30 miles right across north of my house. Only pone guy got hurt - a landowner of mine - when he and his wife sheltered in a basement closet with stock pots on their heads for helmets. They had these big cantaloupe sized river rocks in the landscaping out front and he was beaten badly by several of those as the tornado wiped their entire house off the foundation over them.

Three days after, they were cleaning up and saw something sparkling on the hip of one of their angus cattle that had gotten safely away. Upon closer inspection, they found it to be one of their fine silver butter knives, buried to the hilt in her hip.

Same tornado, my next door neighbor had about 80 cattle in harm's way. They accounted for all but 1. 12 were dead, some wedged in big cottonwood trees thirty feet off the ground. Others simply torn apart. After several days of searching, they finally found what was left of her. The tornado had lifted a huge cottonwood tree out of the ground, root ball and all, and it was in the hole that they found that cow, crushed beneath the weight of the tree which had been neatly placed back where it had come from.

The only good thing about tornadoes is the incredible things you see afterwards and then try to figure out how the hell they happened.

I told my dust devil story before but it must have been over ten years ago so you new people like ko ko haven't heard it.

We were driving north in Monitor Valley, Nevada and it was one of those days dust devils all over the place. So, here comes one wandering but also looked like it might cross our path. Well, it finally made up it's mind and so we stopped and allowed it to cross in front of us. AS it got right to the side of the road it got sucked into a culvert and acted a little crazy. Then, it moved on and a very bewildered coyote jumped out of the culvert and you could just about read his mind, "what the hell was that all about?"

I was about to shoot him when my partner stopped me, very strenuously objecting. He said, hey it's a dog don't shoot him. Two things, first we had passed one of those sheepherder's trailers a mile or so back, so I guess it was possible that his dog was sleeping in a culvert? Yeah right!

The second thing was this was a very remarkably marked coyote, very distinct and vivid color patterns. The way I would describe him is like a Collie dog, but not the white and brown ones like Lassie. no, this one had three colors including black, very attractive pattern. I've seen a lot of coyotes, but this little guy was unique.

I knew it was a coyote because I watched his actions as he jumped out of the culvert but my partner had not seen any of this, all he saw was an animal standing and looking at us, face on. So, I put the gun down, even though I was convinced, but why argue about it, right? And, about this time, the coyote had recovered his senses and decided he was in jeopardy and lit out exactly like a coyote would do. Just as soon as he saw this, Pat grabbed the rifle from as he was saying "COYOTE" and acting like I was the one telling him it was a damned dog!

Anyway, to make a long story short, he killed it as I'm saying well, no shit Dick Tracy! This coyote was so pretty, we skinned it on the spot. He had it tanned and made into a nice rug with a head mount and the last time I saw it, it was tacked to the wall in his den.

Good hunting. El Bee

From today's news locally. A consortium of meteorological researchers are playing "Twister" based out of the Salina, KS airport.

Absolutely thrilling to think of an army of reasearchers surrounding a huge supercell thunderstorm, launching drones into it with computers to collect data, having more gear capturing data on the ground from all around the storm, and a Hurrican Hunter plane 5 miles out front of the storm collecting data at high altitude. They interviewed the Commander of the Hurrican Hunter plane on the radio today and he commented about how this would be a totally different critter for him than going into the maul of a hurricane. Hurricanes don't have bushel basket sized balls of ice falling through air space. Covering any storms that erupt from right next door to me at their home base over the entire central part of the country. Would be cool to be a part of that. At the same time, kinda terrifying that they think where I live is the epicenter of the shit show. About as disconcerting as seeing Reed Timmer's TIV drive through town, which has happened a couple times. I guess it could be worse; I could live in Oklahoma!
