Beastly Storm in a Road Hole

Beastly Storm in a Road Hole

The storm grew ever larger as it passed east of Stinnett, TX. Unfortunately, there is a huge road hole east of there owing to the Canadian River. We were forced to go southeast through Pampa, then back north to get ahead of the storm again. This is our best view from that location before we ran out of daylight; streams of midlevel clouds can be seen circulating around the storm, while a possible shelf cloud is faintly visible just above the ground. Taken May 18, 2010.
