I interviewed Fred Smith recently about his wonderful and famous lightning/tornado photo that he took in 1993.
This photo was one of the subjects in my post "Weather Photos: Fact or Fiction" published yesterday (people are recirculating Fred's photo this Spring, claiming that the photo was taken in the Midwest during this Spring's severe weather outbreaks).
Fred says he's not a professional photographer but he was taking lightning photos from his back yard on June 15, 1993 when he got this lucky shot of a large waterspout on Lake Okeechobee, Florida. The photo was taken about 10:00 at night.

The Blizzard of 2016 flooded coastal communities and piled up over 40 inches of snow, with incredible drifts. Here are the stats.
The Blizzard of 2016 has begun. Here are some historical and model maps.
The NCEP SREF snow plumes are in; now the snow-forecasting fun begins.
Yes, it's true. The possibility of a snowstorm in the East (the first this season for coastal areas).
We've had three named tropical cyclones already this month, two in the Pacific, and today one in the Atlantic.
