This 1998 Oklahoma tornado, about to dissipate four miles to my east, was shredding and uprooting trees along US-81 at the time of the photo. The diffuse grayish-pink area to is near right was made of veils of rain circling the mesocyclone, aglow in the cloud-muted pastels of early sunset-phase light. A classic Okie tornado from start to finish -- in the fall! - this was part of the largest known October tornado outbreak in the US at the time, with 28 confirmed in Oklahoma and eastern Kansas.
