My rule to look around back came in handy the other night. We’d gone out to try to see the comet NEOWISE but the clouds made that plan unworkable. I turned around to see what was behind us (photographically speaking), and that’s when I spotted this fantastic cloud.

Sometimes we’ll go an entire spring season without any storms to speak of. This is not one of those years; between where we stopped for this shot and our house (80 miles) we:
- saw this storm
- skirted a storm that had a tornado
- pulled off the road to let storm ahead of us move out of the way
- saw power poles just a block from our house leaning over from wind
- made it home just minutes before yet another storm hit
It was one of very few times in my life when the weather has frightened me.
