Wild Weather in Iowa

This is an amazing picture I pulled off of a YahooNews page that Arlene forwarded.

A huge tornado funnel cloud touches down in Orchard, Iowa, Tuesday, June 10, 2008 at 9:04 p.m. The Globe Gazette and Mitchell County Press News reported that Lori Mehmen of Orchard, took the photo from outside her front door. Mehmen said the funnel cloud came near the ground and then went back up into the clouds. Besides tree and crop damage, no human injuries were reported.

Thanks! I thought so too. My first instinct was to say, "I wish I had taken it.". But I don't want to be anywhere near one of those things.
