Delaware III

Day two of our brief visit couldn't have been timed better for the entire Delmarva was under the risk for severe weather. As the afternoon wore on, a system progressing from the west sparked off numerous storms to the south including both severe as well as tornado warned. Though a cell of note that had been heading directly for us dissipated by arrival, the remnants made for an excellent backdrop in the end of day light. Blowing sand from the outflow generated by this storm could be seen in the distance. Once the boundary moved overhead, additional cells developing over the sea presented me with what was perhaps the greatest photographic opportunity of our journey.


We would then be asked to leave by a park ranger as the beach closes at nightfall. From there we went over to Lewes Beach and set up for additional storms moving across the Southern New Jersey peninsula.

Perspective as here too I would have to make a quick exit due to heavy rainfall moving in from the west. Additional storms would pass through the overnight but I was simply too tired to go out though no complaints.
