Awesome clouds looking west from Holiday Lake area in Poweshiek County

Brittney's Tradition

My best friend, Brittney,and I used to watch storms from our house. We are on one of the highest areas in Poweshiek county, and at that time we did not have that many trees in the area. Brittney loved tornadoes, but we never saw one. I loved the look of the billowing, bright cumulous clouds above lower, wispier ones and caught some dramatic shots. When I saw the lowering of these clouds, I wanted to snap pictures and figure out if there was rotation in it. I am not sure what we are seeing here, because I am not a trained meteorologist. So here's to Brittney... you tell me if it's a tornado
