|At first we considered this day as a downday. We got another room in our Motel 6 and did some shopping. Late afternoon things looked more promissing for northern Oklahoma. We thought we should give it a try and headed east.|
We ended up just west of
A line of storms formed from Oklahoma all the way up to Ohio and we were near the
most western cell. The storm looked great in the surrounding clear skies and the setting sun.
The stormbase was very turbulent, but high. There were almost no
lowerings at all. Further east and north things were more active, but it was now too late to arrive there in time before dark. Later on that evening we tried to photograph
lightning, but again most discharges were intracloud and the photos turned out to be very disappointing.
