Dust Devil

Windy Day in Tri Cities

This was So cool.. I was out looking for Photo opportunities to test out the new Wide Angle Lens when I saw this tornado (Large Dirt Devil Really) but I'll call it a tornado just for literary purposes. It was headed right for me, I had the window down so I could quickly get a photo, but it was moving about 30-40 mph so I was trying to hurry so I could get my window rolled back up before the dirt hit me, just as I did, it went right over the top of me.. I always wanted to participant in a tornado hunt, and this might be as close to it as I ever get. This first photo was about 5 seconds before it hit me, it was exhilarating! The second photo was after it passed over me and was headed away. I am glad I was in my 1 Ton Truck when it hit me, had I been in our Prius, I may have had an experience like Dorthy in the Wizard of OZ!
