Re: Anyone know where this may have been taken?

no, it is the Lincoln Monument. You can see the north grain elevator. That's the old elevator along Broadway that was torn down. This is definitely Fairmount park I was unaware this park even existed! Usually a lot of strange people milling about up there. I've easily been up there 3 dozen times tr...

Re: Really Bad Storm: 6-16-17.

These weren't classic Supercell Tornadoes, they were spin-ups along a Bow Echo. Most of the time a Bow Echo reduces the threat of a tornado and shifts it to a straight line wind threat, so this was a fairly unusual event. It seems like we usually get a handful Bow Echos a year, but this is the first...
