Default Newbie: June 23-27 Storms

Hey guys..Newb on this forum but long time lurker, this is my first post.

I live in Aylmer, QC just across the bridge from Ottawa.
Lots of activity in the valley here for sure! Aylmer has seen its share of funnel coulds and tornadoes in the past. Scared of storms as a kid (Saw the f3 tornado up close and personal in 1994 and the damage it did to our neighborhood) But since my teens, Ive always been a fan of storms but recently gave it more time and attention.
Went on a mini chase in the weeks of June 23rd to 27th. Im just equipped with my whitewater kayaking cameras (GoPro 960 and Fujifim FinePix Xp10) and my truck. My friend managed to snap a shot and video of a funnel cloud / F0 tornado as it briefly touched the ground near the Boucher Forest area and a lightning shot from my Gopro cam.. I have other pictures but theyre on my home PC. theyre calling for storms again today and I will be out.

Nice to meet you all.

John
