Can you spot the tornado in this photo?

Actually, there are no tornadoes in this photo of construction work on I-70 earlier this year in northwest Kansas. But when I saw the shot, my first thought was that some people would see the rain shafts in the background and mistake them for tornadoes.

When I mentioned this to Kansas Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Swartz in an e-mail, his reply was spot on: “Surely they’ll remark about the dedicated construction crew that isn’t fazed by an approaching twister.”
