Funnel Cloud Near Bridgeport


A sixteen year old's pic  taken off of FM 2123 made it to KXAS Channel 5.

(Thanks Amy Lou for the tip.)

Edit: And hail in Runaway Bay (per Facebook report)

Your photographer might need to read this:

In case he/she is not aware.

9:28 - Photographer was the passenger. No laws violated

As both a Comcast and GE shareholder, I want to thank that kid for providing us with free content so we don't have to buy equipment, amortize it and pay employees' salaries and benefits to cover to be able to that story Why go to all that effort when there's always an idiot willing to support multi-billion dollar corporations with free labor? And he doesn't hold the copyright on that pic anymore! Sucker!

Amy, was the passenger sitting in the drivers lap?

9:44, if the photo were taken by the driver, or by someone "sitting in the driver's lap" then the camera would have been so close to the window that the frame around the window would not have been in the shot.

OMG - guys! The kid got a great shot through the window and sent it to the news! Good for him. He took pride in his picture and wanted to share it. You guys should be proud he took the time to share, verses sitting around thinking of nasty things to say on this blog. Some people need to get a life. Geeze! Once in a lifetime shot kid! KUDOS!

Who cares if a sixteen year old took this pic!!! How hard is it to aim the camera and push the button???? I bet my 4 yr old daughter can do the same and we can send it in and make the news!!!!

Wow, way to suck the joy out of a 16 year old young man getting a picture on TV. By the way, has anyone ever heard of zoom - not sitting on a lap. I'm proud of the young man. I bet he was not worried about copyright issues and calling a 16 year old an idiot? Save that for an adult.

2:37 - Man I'ld hate to be your four year old - she doesn't have a chance at becoming a nice person with you as her mother. What a kill-joy.

Holy crap! Posting from iPhone to this fine blog indicates the decline of my little slice of Western civilization. Punctuation and text insert errors make for some "authentic frontier gibberish."

Note to self before next post: proofread copy. Bob Woodward would be so disappointed. Not that Bob Woodward. The other one... with "The Washington Star."
