The purpose of this post, however is to share one of the most exciting clouds I've witnessed. On the morning of June 8th, around 11:00 a.m., a rather large complex of storms eased its way southeast. After hearing reports of a wicked shelf cloud 30 minutes ahead of the actual storm, I grabbed the camera and waited outside. I was not disappointed! I made an attemt (my first) at pasting together a panoramic of the clouds, but believe me the picture doesn't do the cloud justice. This was amazing.
