On Tuesday, June 1st, I saw the craziest storm structure I have ever seen. I'm a novice when it comes to forecasting and recognizing specific elements of a storm, but I know good structure when I see it. This was, most accurately put, a green beast. At this point, the most dangerous thing it was dropping was golf ball sized hail (even a few softballs reported). However, as the evening pressed on, it began to intensify electrically. When we stopped to take photos of the lightning, we were about 100 yards from being hit =D Definitely had to do a panorama to capture the entire thing (this is 4 shots stitched together).

Please tell me what you think! :dance:
