It was 7 years ago, on 27 April 2011, when monster violent tornadoes ripped across the Deep South. Here's a view of the killer Cullman AL EF4 at maximum size and intensity, after passing Hulaco AL. In a note of great irony, the foreground is a pasture filled with buttercups in bloom.
"After Glow" - the final send off from a storm that I had chased from Possum Kingdom Lake to well south of Italy.

An amazing sight to witness.
