Thermonuclear Thunder

Give me THUNDER! This scene was captured near Leakey Texas. Hurricane Katrina was 12 hours offshore her impact to New Orleans. I mention this simply because the heat in this photo is roughly 107 degrees, no upper level steering winds, due to Katrina's huge influence to the South East in the Gulf of Mexico and an Upper level low centered in West Texas. This thunderhead exploded from the heat and as it grew below, it's top-most outflow had no upper level wind opposition above allowing this very rare mushroom cloud formation. At times the skies of Texas will simply blow you away....this is a very rare formation y'all! :)
