Every weekend's a good one for adopting a dog

My gf and I almost adopted one from the crew that comes up from Louisiana each year with dozens of dogs. Anyway, back to subject:

Anyone getting any storms yet? Nothing here in St. Catharines except for cloudy skies. Temps seem to have risen a bit, and humidity has gone up.

Big storms approaching Windsor area. Hopefully they'll maintain some kick throughout the evening and make for some good lightning-shooting photography

I was just out walking said new dog in Mississauga: At the start of the walk, I could see the sun through clouds to the West, but it got dark fast. Clouds were not terribly defined overhead and moving slowly. High humidity, no wind to speak of, not even a breeze.

Planes taking off from Pearson Airport were making left turns and heading south.

I was quite impressed at the intensity of the IC's...I was impressed with the light show. Most times it was just flashes, but the IC's did reveal some definition. It's now over. Lasted 25 minutes with good rainfall and good lighting. Now moving east.

There's a reason they call niagara the electricity capital of canada, and its not just niagara falls and the hydro plant. I think that because thunderstorms are fewer and farther between, we build alot of static in the ground.
Tonight was an example of one of our highly energetic storms passing I went in the house for the last couple minutes as things were getting too close. enjoy

As nasty as it seemed because of all the lightning, it really wasn't that bad. Almost ZERO wind. Heavy rain as it was over head, but aside from the lightning it wasn't as bad as it looked on radar.

Awesome video StormFreak! Great editing job too. I know how time consuming it is with lightning video. (I used to pull all the best parts back when I started in '98, but just don't have the patience anymore! ) You've got an awesome vantage point. Keep 'em coming on future lightning storms!

(ps. I'm going to move this post into the May.29 thread in the first forum - I'll move that entire thread into the 2011 forum later)
