Tornado North of West Union 8/19/09

West Union Tornado - Me and my dad

Finally arranged a time for my Dad to come spend some quality time and as he was arriving the tornado was just starting to touch down about a mile or so north of my home. So we grabbed the camera and watched as it made its way across the horizon as it moved it touched down and jumped 3 times, we actually watched it jump a farm.Pretty amazing for my first tornado experience.

Always remember- the first three letters of "FUNNEL CLOUD" are "F", "U" and "N".

Always great to spend time with family. Even better when you get to experience something spectacular like a tornado with them. As long as it's not on top of you or hurting people :)
