Skywatch Friday: The Apocalypse Begins in 2 Minutes
Arlington Heights, IL. July 10, 7:30 PM
Today's Skywatch is dedicated to UrSpo, who loves a good Midwestern thunderstorm. We got a fine one this evening. About two minutes after I took this photo (while stopped at a red light). the heavens opened with a violent thunderstorms that included hail (my poor car).
It's been a day of violent weather here in Illinois. The above photo is from the second wave of storms that hit. I was lucky. We were out catching butterflies to breed in the lab (more on that in an upcoming post). The first wave of storms did not hit until we were done, and we were safely in the car and on our way before the violence started. We were treated to some dramatic skies on our way out.
