Woodward, OK Supercell
Northwest of Seiling on US281, approaching a developing
About 7pm. Watched a slightly rotating wall cloud for about 30 minutes
between Woodward and Sharon.
East of Vici, OK. About 9:30 pm.
About 5 minutes later, I had pulled over to watch the
incredible lightning show. These two images are from 2 consecutive frames,
1/30th a second apart. It looks like it comes off my hood. Consensus says these
bolts were reflections inside my camera from a bolt overhead.

7:45PM. Went South of Oklahoma City after work to some storms
near Sulfur/Davis, OK. Nice row of cells developed, but they dissipated quickly

Central Oklahoma Storms

Southwest Oklahoma Storms
We got some really nice rainbow shots, coming in from the west as the
storm was intensifying.
I'm thinking I need a new wide-angle lens. This one
doesn't like my camera.
After getting in close we found a nicely rotating wall cloud under the
southwest end of the storm.
(Unfortunately, we left this storm in favor of a developing
cell just to the South, fearing the Northern storm would be cut off. Of course
it ended up producing a tornado about 20 minutes later near Cordell. Lesson:
NEVER leave a rotating wall cloud!!!
These are looking at the rain shafts on the other side of the lake at Quartz
Mountain. The pictures don't do it justice.

Downtown Vici, OK as serious outflow winds blow into town.
The black objects in front of and on my vehicle are parts of the roof from the
cleaners to the right of me. It pelted us pretty good.
