Blue Springs, NE (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This intense storm traveled from Kansas up into Nebraska. It intesified in strength and produce several comfirmed tornadoes. It was awsome. I have never seen the atmosphere move that way before.

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This has to be the most amazing capture ever,and YOU! got it!!!! COngrats!!! Hope it made into a magazine by now??!! or heck,,make your own!!I am real impressed! we see the beginnings of these monsters,,or parts of them,,but they usually are so spread out,,,it is most amazing when the colors are dark gray,light purple,and dark green and purple!! but here in Shenandoah,Iowa,the worst of it goes around town or high over head,,,did hear the freight train over head once,or twice,,!
There is a legend about this town,,that it is why the Indigenous peoples preferred this location because the tornadoes never touched down...must be a Ripley's kind of thing,,as I have lived here 18 yrs,,and seen funnels outside of town,a mile or so,,and they apparently elbow above town..A special favorite cos it's near Iowa in a way..but because it is the most awesome capture yet!Mindi

So wild to see an entire storm in one big cell! I think I like living where there are steep hills and valleys that can give us places to hide from these monsters. I would feel so helpless out in the center of a storm like this.

What an incredible picture! I wish my "10" had put the rating back to "10" where it belongs ;-)
I've never seen anything like this before so thank you, live4storms, for sharing with us!
By the way, did any other picture get as many votes as this one? This shows how impressive it is.

Had to look at this photo again this morning.
Question: What is that 'tall thing' sticking out of the ground beneath the cloud on the far right?
Amazing photo! Looks like there should be something like a UFO hiding inside that cloud somewhere! Love photos like this!!!

Very nice indeed. You've gotten lots of comments which means that folks liked this pic. I've never seen one of these but would love to. This is an amazingly big storm brewing and I'm guessing it was moving very rapidly.

OK, who's the "TARD" for lowering the rating! This shot is a perfect TEN all around and whoever you are, you KNOW that. So phooey! hehehe

All kidding aside, I keep coming back to this shot and just STARING at it. If I could rate it 100 %, I would :)
