Majesty before Mayhem

Majesty before Mayhem

Less than 15 minutes after this amazing skyscape appeared over the grasslands of east-central Montana, the very same atmospheric process (a supercell at the tail end of a line of storms) unloaded severe, damaging winds and hail that busted every west-facing window in Winnett.  Therein is the dichotomy of life on the Great Plains: majesty and beauty intertwine with danger and destruction, day to day, year to year, and only a relatively small population of hardy and resourceful folks have the wherewithal to handle it.  With the passage of each spring in which I spend just a few weeks on the High Plains, my respect only grows deeper for those who reside there full-time.
