    Something you don't see every day...70,000 ft echo tops

    70,000 ft is the max reported by NEXRAD, so the storm might actually be above 70,000 ft.

    It would not be good to be in the path of this storm...

    It would be crazy scary to fly through that storm.

    Looks like planes are DFW are definitely avoiding it. Of course flying around it should not be that hard since the storm is not over any major area right now.

    Ah . . . Flight tracker. How I missed you.

    That is one nasty Texas sized storm though.

    Ugh. It's bad, but I'm jealous. I always feed disappointed when this sort of thing misses where I'm living...
