Vortex Stretching

Vortex Stretching

The already improbable Connerville tornado stretched ever longer into a slender, graceful, somewhat translucent, yet still intense vortex, buzzing across the open country as if a vaporous drill bit.  While this will be forgotten in the annals of historical tornadoes due to its lack of damage, I consider that a wonderful thing—especially in light of the other destructive, killer events from supercells on either side.  Instead we could observe this surprise tornado without angst, and appreciate it for its beauty.
