Well, aside from the impressive supercell(s) in the Arkansas River Valley yesterday, things turned out pretty much as I expected them to. I do wish that I would have chased those storms, though. Man, some of the pictures I have seen are quite impressive! Congrats to Verne for pulling the tornado out of the deep core, impressive catch!!
Today was a bit of a surprise as well. I saw the boundary on the south side of the Palmer and didn't think much of it because of the ... I'm ashamed to say this, 45ºF Tds. The old Dann, the one not used to Denver being consistently humid like it's been for the past month, would have slapped me. We saw a nice train of supercells roll on the south side of the Divide today. Gorgeous! Too bad I was at work ...
Anyway, last night I did manage to get out for a severe-warned storm that blew through the Denver area at 11PM. I got some of the best lightning pics that I've ever taken. Enjoy! Click for larger images:
Oh yeah, and I'm chasing on Saturday and Sunday! Bring on the weekend!!!
