Wow, beautiful storm chasing photos!

by on May.27, 2006, under General

Just saw some of these beautiful storm chasing photos this morning and thought others might be interested smile God knows, I love a good thunderstorm. Watching from my porch, seeing the clouds roll by, etc. I remember living on the coast up in New Hampshire, and seeing big storms come in from the ocean. It’s an awe-inspiring, yet humbling feeling to see such an awesome sight. God does some truly amazing things in this world.

    Good photos….I noticed that several are from the KC area.  One of the men in our Sunday School class is a storm chaser here in the KC area.  He has had several “close encounters” ~ very cool stories to hear.

    Are storms off of the ocean similar to tornadoes in the midwest?

    Hmm, I’d like to think the storms were slightly different.  I think they generally moved quicker, but this may be my memories playing tricks on me.  There was also I think a different “smell” to the storms – possibly due to the ocean nearby.  I remember though last year being in South Carolina, while I was Scuba Diving, watching storms build up off the coast.  It was GORGEOUS.  I can’t express that enough!  Granted, I’m glad I wasn’t out in it when the storms hit, but still, it was amazing to see.  I can’t wait till I can get out to the ocean, do some more diving.

    Hmm, just realized – “tornadoes” – umm, ocean storms, well, I haven’t been in any hurricanes.  I’d imagine hurricanes are MUCH worse than Tornadoes, but I’m not the one to ask.  Thunderstorms are another matter entirely.

    I actually meant to ask if the storms off the ocean are similar to the storms that create tornadoes….so you did answer the question the first try

    I haven’t seen the Atlantic, but I’ve seen one mild storm off of the Pacific.  Big, dark clouds and impressive waves crashing onto the rocks.  Didn’t get any pictures 🙁

    Definitely go diving this summer and get lots of pictures to share for those of us who are land locked….  Arrrgh, Chris and I are using our vacation time this year to see brother R get married in Vegas.  I am excited to see the big event, but I’d rather have fresh air and hiking for a vacation.  I am looking forward to seeing Hoover Dam, though.
