I'm way south of Austin, a good three or four hours drive from whatever weather was passing through Dallas. We got a little bit of rain (0.04") last night and that was it. I don't imagine Glenn would have got much more. Wrei might have got something of the edge of it?

We're good. Sent prayers of thanks and then help and comfort for the folks in Granbury. There were some very large homes damaged there from the mile wide tornado, wow.

Just restating what I read Jo:

"In a warning issued at 9:23 p.m. CDT Wednesday, the National Weather Service indicated that, "Storm spotters and Doppler radar observed a tornado moving northeast at 15 mph near Cleburne. Spotters reported that this tornado is a mile wide, and capable of incredible destruction. This tornado has shifted paths, and is aimed right at the city of Cleburne.""

A quick Google reveals that we had a mighty fine and quiet night in Buda compared with the folks further north!

I dunno about that shot, Jon... lighting's very contrasty and your model looks way too happy to be there: too obviously posed. Not your best work.

Now about that gorgeous piece of art in your hands...

That mile+ wide tornado packed winds up to 145mph. I checked in with Gunny late last night, the worst went south of him, but not by much. None of this was forecast, but "a few scattered storms" quickly built into four "super cells" and four to six funnel clouds. It was an action packed evening for sure.

Looks like ISAP 2013 is off to a rousing start with the Whidbey Island pre-field trip. Wish I could have been there, but glad my little enterprise is rockin'. 33 years of this teaches one that, while you can love what you do for a living, don't ever let yourself think of it as a hobby. 2013 is the year to make up for five years of job creation through welfare and unemployment, what a concept, and "W"'s last year wasn't any great shakes either! I'm grateful for my schedule, while being ever mindful that "I didn't create this........." Actually God created it, I just do the photography and send the invoice.

I know you are getting into lighting....no comment on that glare in the microwave glass?

It is a gorgeous piece of art for sure....

Wonder if Jay would faint if he knew it was going on my wall next to an Ansel Adams original?

Naaa....probably not...

Good for you Jon! We have a large Jay Beckman original in our house as well. I always feel small walking by it

On a much less cheerful note, I'm letting our family know that Rolf's been getting ultrasound checkups every six months to ensure his bladder reflux didn't return. His last three ultrasounds came back perfect, but today's did not.

He's got a bunch of water in his left kidney, and we're going to start a series of diagnostic tests to figure out what caused it and how to fix it. The urologist has emphasized that we should assume it's a serious issue until/unless proven otherwise (gee, really, you think so?), so we're off to the races.

I'll keep y'all posted.


Sorry I'm late with this but best wishes to young Rolf.

We live on the other side of Maypearl and they would have been next if the storm hadn't run out of steam, thankfully...

While wasting time at Hobby airport waiting on my flight home I glanced at the cover of Flying magazine with a beautiful photo of a Cirrus on it. My first thought was - Glen's photos are better than that!

What a great group this is to share like you guys do.

Dear Geaux,

What a nice thing to say. This is a great group precisely because it contains folks like you. BTW, you're right on the money, most any publication would be better off with Glenn's work adorning it's pages, the guy is spectacular.

Do you get to Houston often? I've got a project there next week, if they finish the interior work.

Glad you're safe and sound Lynn. Those were some beauts! I was really worried about Gunny, he lives in Cresson on Bourland Field. Way too close for comfort.
