Incredible shot.

I've seen a lot of storms. I drive tens of thousands kilometers each year in search of supercells, to Texas and all parts in between on the way back. Sally doesn't sell them at the Sea Shore. But sometimes, like on this day, I'm shocked at the structure I am watching develop in the sky. This supercell put on a show for us for 5 hours in the heart of Hailstorm Alley in Alberta. It makes me wonder what people who are not used to seeing supercells must think when they see something like this. I remember the first time I saw a supercell rotating in the sky, I was in highschool. I was too busy being amazed to be afraid. The first nations people who lived in this area of Alberta would leave each summer, and come back after storm season was over. A tipi would not have provided much protection from baseball sized hail.
