Here is a picture of the tornado that went through my town in the summer of 2018. I was fortunate to only have about 35K in damages to my house where some of the houses just to the west of me including the one about 50 yards away were completely destroyed.

What a terrible act of mother nature, so sorry to hear you had damage, but glad it was not as bad as some of your neighbors. This is one scary but well done shot of that funnel cloud. I have seen the results of one when I was very young in Nebraska, it took out our favorite pizza place, and we had one hit my place of work once here in Indiana, and just missed my parents house and mine , my work place did suffer alot of damage, but if it had taken out the back side of our plant, it could have been the end of our business, so we were very lucky. This is one heck of a shot! tigs=^..^=

Great shot of the funnel Bob. They are devastating. I have seen the results of many of them. Glad you or none of your family was injured.
This is a great entry for the current contest. It should do well.

Oh yeah, that is a bad one approaching and it looks scary. Good thing that your damage was at least repairable even at high cost. Perfect entry and almost certain to be the winner.

I don't know how you were able to hold the camera steady to snap this photo,, this is a disturbing scene to say the least. Thankful that it was not worse for you. But must admit, you got a great shot of this.

Congrats on the win Bob - When I first saw it I knew it was a winner. We who live in the Midwest know how "frightful" these can be.
