Evening thunderstorm

June 11, 2013

As Bugman and I were leaving a meeting around nine this evening, we both caught a glimpse of lightning through the trees to the east.

As we drove home from the northwest side of Scottsbluff, this is what we saw:

There was a near-constant flicker of lightning in that cloud.

I had envisioned going home and heading straight to bed, but instead, Bugman and I headed for the soccer field north of town to watch the show.

    That WAS quite a storm. I took a couple of wall cloud images and then a tornado warning was issued. Thought I saw a brief funnel but low light didn’t help. If it would have been 12 minutes earlier would have been spectacular.
