I pushed my luck a bit as I had some things to accomplish this afternoon, but after running another demo to the post office (talented meteorologist will work for food/storms), I was actually a little disappointed that some cloudcover out west might steal the show. This disappointment worsened when the wave seemed to break up into a row of stacked-plate lenticulars.
Luckily, traffic wasn't too bad and the line at the post office moved quickly. When I got home, I figured I would head out to the open space east of my complex. I brought my tripod and saw a little color beginning to show on the plates. This got me excited.
Not two minutes later, the entire row lit up. It was breathtaking!
It's been almost two months since I've heard thunder, but I do love wave cloud season here along the Front Range!
