This gives a new meaning to the tower saying "early right turnout approved". Great shot!

Great shot! I can't believe this photo was not featured as a staff pick when currently there are 135 votes!

I would have banked on this being a staff pick too.

I was fortunate enough to see this that day, there was something going on with the museums and I was down at the windsock. Sort of scared me as I had no idea why it was rolling so hard!
