This won’t help those folks who like to dispute the common belief that Kansas is as flat as a pancake.
The Wichita branch of the National Weather Service tweeted a photo of a thunderstorm taken by its “sky cam” Wednesday night.
No big deal, right? Well, the thunderstorm was just southeast of Larned, which is a good 120 miles west-northwest of Wichita.
“It’s pretty cool,” weather service meteorologist Jim Caruso said of the photo, which was taken by a camera more than 30 feet off the ground.
Meteorologists even dubbed the storm “little orphan anvil” because it was all by itself a long way away.
