  6. Well, Billy, I am sorry this happened at all but no surprise you captured it beautifully. I can’t believe the damage. Glad you’re ok.

  7. Well, I’m upset that I missed this “extreme weather” happening (a weird family thing) but I almost felt like I was there by looking at the aftermath through your eyes. Most likely I will never get to experience a tornado in my own back yard but our talks and your pics gave me the next best thing.

  8. Your pix are more poetic than mine, neighbor;-)

  9. So many of these shots captured the strange beauty (and raw power) to be found even in destruction! Awesome stuff.

  10. Great photos – I agree with the other commenter who said they were poetic. You made some very nice compositions, while capturing the raw destruction. With all the limbs down, it made the place look like a jungle – very green and lush. Disruptive nevertheless. Thanks for posting them.
