Asperatus and storm clouds

The other day, someone made a comment about a photo I had posted on Google+. It was of a cloud formation that I had seen in North Dakota or Montana. They informed me that the photo was of the newly named Asperatus variety. She sent me a link to a Youtube video and a website that is all about cloud appreciation. I was surprised that the clouds were something new because I saw them all across the country when I was following storms. I soon recognized that when I saw them, some very foul weather was to follow. I noticed them during my last journey across the northern part of the country and I discovered I could spot a storm coming before the National Weather Service.

These photos are of cloud formations from Arizona to Lake Michigan to Yellowstone National Park and everywhere in between.

Photos from Route 66, Missouri

These photos were taken on Route 66 in Missouri. This was on the way to Joplin, MO. I entered St Louis in the late afternoon, so it was not an ideal time to tour. I did find Jellystone Park though, so I had to make a quick stop. I wanted to find some local cuisine and a billboard directed me to Missouri Hick Bar-B-Q in Cuba, MO. Great food. Right next door was a newly renovated Wagon Wheel Motel, so I walked over there and got a room. Would have been better if Tanya was with me though. She would have liked it. The next morning, Buddy and I went for a walk around Cuba and I brought the camera. Pretty cool little town.

There was a car show in Springfield the next day, so there were lots of cool cars to see on the drive west. Then, I found that storm in Mt. Vernon.

Photos from Meramec Caverns

After what can only be described as a thrilling evening in the Ozarks and southern Missouri, we spent the night in Lebanon, MO. We had found weather or it had found us, I am not sure. The first six photos in this set were taken within ninety seconds. Finding foul weather was going to be easier it seemed. A few miles east of Lebanon was Stanton, home of the Meramec Caverns. I had no idea what to expect, so I asked Tanya to Google it for me. She said it looked like some caves, but had a nice river to photograph, so I took another detour.

I am so glad we decided to take the tour of the caves. They were a lot more amazing than any others I have visited, anywhere. If you are in the area, take the 90 minutes to do the tour. You will not regret it. Oh, you might want to park close to the entrance though as their rains come quick and heavy.
