Blog Post #301, Bobby Cookie

I can't believe it's been nearly 3 years since I started this blog and I've managed to post 301 times. I hate writing (most of the time).

I hyped up yesterday even though it didn't pan out...that's how it always works...say something about it, it doesn't happen....and vice versa. Mother nature has a funny way of keeping her most magnificent displays limited to those who passionately pursue them in silence, I guess.

I actually videotaped a funnel cloud on a dying, yet occluding updraft yesterday after I had written the day off. I don't have any pictures of it, but I'll upload the HD video soon and post the 30 seconds of bliss lol.

A couple of photos yesterday, even rain showers and towering cb can give some good eye candy every once in awhile. I love chasing these localized, over-looked or marginal days......there are rarely any tornadoes...but there aren't any chasers around, usually very few people around either and sometimes I luck out with great structure. My disfunctional eye is being blamed for this piss-poor shooting I did yesterday...

Barber-pole Updraft

Towering Cu

I've been battling a stye this past week and the shooting, sharp pain it gives me has hindered me doing anything productive. I tried to take a picture of it, but it didn't turn out that well......on the bottom of my eyelid lies a bump that inflicts major pain into the eye!

Stye in my Eye

And some photos I had forgotten about...I have a lot of decent ones I'm gradually starting to process...


Kansas Sunflower

And a couple of Derek's I processed for him back when we lived on top of downtown Kansas City parking garages, in June/July, shooting lightning........

And a couple of some structure from an awesome July 2nd chase.....

And last but not least...Bobby Cookie's spotter network report from last night in Texas. I'm wondering if Mr. Cookie really exists...with bogus reports of tornadoes and hail being talked about the day prior. I think it's time to close membership on spotter network with some of the crap being reported and impostors making fake reports and screwing with the warning decisions for NWS offices.
