Storms of 2006

La Nina had a strong hold on the US. Extremely dry conditions sparked forest fires across, TX, OK, and NM. Finally some relief came to these regions. Though the storm season has seems to have shifted. It is in this  year with the gulf moisture feeding up into south central that we saw massive storms in MO and AR. Missouri saw a tornado outbreak with about 140 tornado reports. 

I was blessed to have viewed my first viewing/photography of Arizona lightning and while on the same trip, I saw some awesome Dust Devils.
