And, Speaking of Lightning

[Scroll down for a posting about lightning and major league sports]

At 5:40pm CDT, I grabbed this image of the combined lightning and radar data.
The cloud-to-ground lightning (which is what this display depicts) is a full 32-miles ahead of the rain! This is what meteorologists call "anvil lightning" and it is just as deadly as any other kind.

Remember, even if it is sunny, When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors!!
