Amazing time lapse by Mike Olbinski of a gigantic rotating supercell over Booker, Texas. The storm system ultimately did not spawn a tornado, but what a beautiful, powerful rendering of wind at work. Make sure to watch it in HD, full-screen, with a bit of volume. It took him four trips to the Central Plains to get the footage. [NOTE: Early in the first part, torrential rain is coming down on the right and being sucked back into the rotation].
