An isolated storm over Mesa

Last night we had some impressive, isolated towers go nuts in about 3-4 spots around Phoenix…mostly in the east Valley. I stepped outside my backyard and saw them going up and so we drove east to see if we could get some lightning.

Here’s a shot of the cell over east Mesa that dropped a ton of rain and caused some wind damage. I took over 600 shots and it never landed a bolt on the ground, everything was just in-cloud. A bummer…but then again…look at this thing right at sunset. Gorgeous colors.

One of my favorite moments in storm chasing is to stumble upon these solo storms. I find them absolutely majestic.
