Oh Heavenly Bodies

We had no “super cell” tornadic activity today but that’s OK by me. We were richly rewarded. We were in KS for the day working the tail end charlies of the storm track arcing into MO. We didn’t suffer one bit!

What you see here is what we saw. The color was that amazing. The clouds tried and tried to break the cap to form a proper super cell but they couldn’t make it. As the sun went down other energies came in and what you see is the result. This was simply beyond description!

We ended up our day and our storm chasing with a lightning storm that blew away any 4th July show. The lightning was still going when we left 40mins later. What you can’t see in this small image are the blurs from the fireflies trying their best to flash fill the foreground. One helluva a week and a whole new appreciation for those heavenly bodies!
