Life Imitates Art As Cows Fly Through The Air ‘Twister’-Style During Wyoming Tornado
Wyoming Tornado Makes You Wonder What is Realistic in Movies
Strangely enough, now you can add the 1996 blockbuster Twister to the growing list thanks to footage from storm chaser / self described “Extreme Meteorologist” Reed Timmer. Caught smack dab in the middle of a ferocious tornado near Cheyenne, Wyoming, he took this video of the behemoth instead of running away screaming in the opposite direction.
INTENSE damaging #tornado touches down 20 miles northwest of Cheyenne, WY and retrogrades back west as it widens into massive cone. Had to punch through hook with horizontal softballs to get to this vantage point. Thankfully everyone is okay here@breakingweather @accuweather pic.twitter.com/h2lQUdFGq9

Those little specks flying through the air weren’t your average debris. Not unless debris makes a “moo” sound as they fly around. Yep, those were cows being tossed around like rag dolls in winds hovering around the 200 m.p.h. range.

We’ll stick to plain ol’ cow tipping, thanks. No one ever got hurt doing that, right?
Eh, one more ’90s movie reference for the road, at least.
