More Photos and Video of Tornado

I got to looking around and saw that there were alot of good pics and video online of the tornado a few days ago.

I also found some more pictures from the website for our local newspaper here in Waxahachie, Tx.

Tornado on May 20th, 2010 Midlothian, Texas

On May 20th, I was headed back from the post office around 2:00pm and stopped to get a Slurpee. It was extremely humid but I had no idea what I was about to encounter. I pulled out of RaceTrack and saw people running to the curb on Hwy 77 in Waxahachie to take pictures. I had no idea what was going on or why they were doing this. As I pulled out onto the street I saw the twister. I wanted to get my phone out to take pictures also, but people were driving like idiots. I saw 2 fender benders in about 30 seconds and decided to haul ass home and see what I could get from there. I got a call on my cell phone from the city of Waxahachie that a tornado was on the ground on Hwy 287 Bypass in Midlothian and heading down 287 to Waxahachie. (Duh, I had already seen it myself).

Anyways, the first 3 pictures were taken by friends of the actual tornado. I took the rest of the pictures from my home and along my street of the clouds I could catch.

There is no way to say in words what it looked like with the clouds swirling above and my adrenaline pumping. It was an awesome day and I truly love extreme weather.
