Without the lat/lon coordinates of the reports I had to guess where each report came from. Still works.

Just a small clip of some of the lightning - shot on a camcorder that wasn't really set up right. I was taking still photos (which you can hear in the background) and only had my camcorder perched on a mini tripod sitting on the kitchen sink pointed out the window, and didn't have to fidget with the manual focus

That's pretty intense. By the time the storms were past me, well to the SE and on my way back home, it was just getting dark. Missed the night time light show. Those are by-far my favorite to capture.

That was a fun day yesterday. Hopped in the truck around 4pm and headed out shortly there after. Made it down towards the Harriston/Wingham area. Shot a video of some nice scud clouds moving around, and pulling up off the ground, and in the last few frames of the video, it appears as though a small tornado was trying to form. Unfortunately, I managed to stop recording and moved closer to that area.. By the time I got there, it was gone. Definitely thought something was going to form right there. But, it didn't quite make it.

The video looks best when viewed from a low angle to darken the image. What do you think?

Shot at 7:35PM just north of Gorrie, (between Wingham and Harriston)
