Summer in March

You know the world is about to end when present temperatures are a good 25 to 30 degrees above average and competing with records dating back to the 1800's. As result, it feels more like July than March. Speaking of which, a stale pattern currently over the Midwest having abundant moisture and heating but no significant upper support has resulted in daily isolated pop up showers and storms. A few storms have occasionally been severe with large hail as the primary threat. On that which developed late last night, I tried my luck with lightning but was somewhat unsuccessful. By the time I was on the road, anything worth following was pretty much already collapsing. A few small cells to the NW near Lincoln kicked off a few sparks but not very bright or frequent enough to justify producing a time lapse even though I was shooting continuous.

11 minute stack.

The trip home however, is when it became interesting...
