Default August 14, 2010 - near Sault Ste. Marie

I'm new to this forum, and not a storm chaser, but I am a casual weather geek.

My spouse and I observed this weather during a drive up north for a kayak trip late afternoon (about 4:45 local time, Saturday, Aug 14) on Hwy 17.

Early shots show the sky from around Rydal Bank, Ontario, storm shots are from near Neebish (southeast of Sault Ste. Marie), later shots are of coming out on the cold side of the front at the south end of the Sault, looking back on the system.

There was rotation visible in the mists at the base of the descending cloud form. Unfortunately, we were making about 60-80 km/h toward Sault Ste. Marie, so we never got to see if it developed into something more. I had mixed feelings about driving through this weather with two kayaks strapped to the roof of the car - wanted to go slow & shoot the cloud & wanted to speed up & get out of there!
