Erick's Electrics

After a flaming sunset began the real "chase day," we followed a cluster of storms as it loped through the eastern Texas Panhandle, intermittently shooting forth sizzling jabs of lightning. Its final electrical encore blazed through the skies over Erick, a dot on the western Oklahoma map also located just to the right of this photo. Duly satisfied with what we had salvaged from what had been a lame daylight event, we cruised home. It goes to show that, when the sun is setting and the observing day seemingly done, the most interesting and beautiful storm experiences still may be yet to come.
