    Fantastic pictures those. Glad to see everyone had a great time! Not always about the storms, even slower weather days can be absolutely memorable!

    Why is this not happening on a Friday night. 0800 start tomorrow, so hope to see the first few hours tonight before getting some kip! Second MODERATE Risk back to back. Wonder when that last happened?

    So, I feel asleep when the magic happened, woke up this morning and saw Twitter lighting up with videos from near Tescott, KS, Culver, KS and some near Bennington, KS. One looked scarily like that wedge that happened near Chapman, KS on 25th May 2016. Good to see no reports of any injuries too! #LoveKansas

    2018 Q&A For Tornado Season

    Personally, I always tend to use a DSLR camera, worth spending some money on a decent one with interchangeable lenses if photography is your thing. I used my phone for fast moving shots, say if you just get 30 seconds at a location before the storms catch up. Agree with Mark, that a decent tripod for a digital camera is a must, think mine was £35, and it's pretty nice, my first one was $10 from Walmart in Fort Stockton, and it lasted a couple of years of light use, but fell apart during a massive lightning storm - gutted! Also, make sure your good are covered by insurance, I now use Protect My Bubble and for sub £8 a month, my camera and lenses are protected - which includes damage while away from home and on holidays! Well worth the money! Mike.
