Another View of Last NIght's Thunderstorm

We had a spectacular thunderstorm in west Wichita yesterday evening and I'd like to show it to you from another angle, courtesy of Jeff Hutton of the National Weather Service in Dodge City.

That is the storm as viewed looking southeast.  You can see how it was leaning to the north.

From my back yard this is the storm at roughly the same time. I'm looking west northwest. You can see it is leaning to the north (right).

Later, it had developed into a full thunderstorm with the classic anvil shape as indicated in Jeff's photo.

And, here is the thunderstorm from a much closer distance looking west northwest.

Here is a brief video tour of the thunderstorm from my backyard:

Finally, the image below is what it looked like from 22,000 miles above the equator:
Yet with all the lightning and thunder, it produced less than a half inch of rain. All sizzle, no steak.
