stormy weather

Stormy night tonight. During the beginnings of the storm for some reason fire trucks swarmed the encore while I was setting up to shoot for lightning.. Lucky me:

There are two cranes at the pinnacle site outside my window and as the supercell blew through downtown they were blowing freely in the wind and did a 360 to point right at me as shit blew off the top of them. Kinda scary. Did you know cranes blow freely in the wind? I never knew that until I lived downtown. I mean, it makes sense. Still a little scary to have giant 20 story windmills in your backyard.

UPDATE: Got Tennessean’ed
