It started with an observation then a question. Someone mentioned that they thought the sunset had been more red than usual lately. That led me on a quest to determine if there is something weird going on and if so, why?
My wife is a meteorologist, so I see a lot of weather-related things. So, when I say that this is one of the wildest clouds I've ever seen, that gives you an idea how crazy this Missouri cloud is where it rolls like an ocean wave.
If you've ever had the privilege of visiting the Great Lakes area, you know that weather can change in a heartbeat. One visitor near Lake Michigan captured a stunning time-lapse of a storm that suddenly popped up rolling in over the water.
It's been said that lightning never strikes twice. I can prove with science that's not even close to true as I've found a video showing lightning hitting 3 Chicago skyscrapers at the same time and that happened FOUR times.
Since my wife is a meteorologist, I tend to be interested in weather things. This is the result of that. I wondered out loud what the worst tornado in Illinois history was and almost everywhere I looked agreed that it was a 200-mile-long EF5 that devastated multiple states back in 1925.
