So last night, 8/20/2014 was one of those moments in life that makes one realize we all need to learn to pay attention to our surroundings, get outside and take in Mother Nature, well, if you are into that sort of thing. :)
Storms developed southwest of the O’Fallon, MO region and moved NE around 35 mph, along the way they crossed an outflow boundary moving west from storms earlier in the day in Illinois. I could hear the thunder and stepped outside, I could just start to see the anvils of the coming storms. As the evening continued the view continued to get more spectacular as seen below. I was in awe, once I finished grabbing these images, I immediately went to work on getting a time-lapse put together from my west webcam on the house. It turned out awesome, with over 2000 views in the first 20 hours of being published along with being used on KMOV on the 10 o’clock newscast and throughout the day today. Feel free share the video below the images.
