LOL. Back when ANY thunder, or even distant lightning, was cause for an immediate PDS!Your experience sounds similar to mine, Greg. And I'm sure many others here as well. I used to be absolutely terrified of tornadoes when I was a kid, I thought they could happen with any run of the mill thunderstorm and I used to keep a sharp eye for tornadoes any time I heard thunder. I'm sure the many tornado documentaries and video series and photos didn't help that either.
Yea, he took a whole sequence of pictures.That Goshen/Elkhart series of photos are some of my favorites. I think I recall Bob H. mentioning Paul Huffman actually took another photo that was unreleased? I might have read it wrong though.
Yeah, that's my blog.Edit - higher resolution pics found at http://stormstalker.wordpress.com/tag/elkhart-tornado/
Never seen that picture before and WOW~ Just amazing....although, I must say...if those were barreling down the road towards me I would be running for cover and a new pair of pants!Although not nearly as old, the Elkhart, Indiana double vortex image also held great fascination. Since when do tornadoes come in pairs? As if one wasn't bad enough...
Just noticed this. I probably did say that, Shawn. When I interviewed Paul and his wife, Elizabeth, a few years ago, he mentioned that he had taken seven photos. That puzzled me, because I had only seen the six, and I asked him about it. As I recall, he seemed pretty certain that he had taken seven photos, but I never did get to see the seventh. Now I question my memory, and if it's accurate, then I kind of question Paul's. I have the tape of that interview. I need to go back and listen to it just to satisfy my own curiosity.That Goshen/Elkhart series of photos are some of my favorites.
