Photo Friday May 17, 2013 “Storm Front”

You may have noticed a weather-related tilt to my recent posts. I guess that the changing of the seasons here in Nebraska along with the extremes we have seen mean that I am paying especially close attention to Mother Nature. Now that she has finally kicked Old Man Winter out of the state, we got to enjoy our first real thunderstorm.

This cell moved over our farm yesterday. Beautiful and scary all at once, isn’t it?

About jheem

I grew up on a diversified dairy farm in southeast South Dakota where I learned how to throw a hay bale, pull a calf, deal with death, and "name" the cows. I was in 4H and FFA, and was privileged to serve as a state FFA officer. In college, I studied animal science, focusing on beef cows, mostly because I figured they were less work than dairy cows....I ended up with a Masters Degree in ruminant nutrition and went to work for the University of Nebraska, first as a research tech coordinating data collection for a swine unit and beef feedlot on a research farm and then as an extension educator. In my current job, I focus on environmental issues related to animal agriculture (which is a nice way of saying I talk about manure alot). My husband and I live and work on a seedstock cattle operation in northeast Nebraska. You can learn more about our cattle operation by visiting my husband's blog at

  1. We are In the midst of the yucky unpredictable spring of Kentucky and the storms roll in every weekend right now :(. Makes you give up hopes of weekend escapes and sunny adventures!

  2. That picture is so awesome! I love those clouds even though they scare me to death. And thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I had run across yours some time back and wanted to follow you, but then it slipped through the swiss cheese holes in my brain and I couldn’t remember where I’d seen it. So, thank you 🙂 I will follow you via bloglovin’

  3. This is a beautiful photo with the storm moving in, a beautiful sight!
