20150714 Storms Fayetteville, TN & Huntsville, AL

On 7/14/15 a decent line of storms came in from TN. I head up to Fayetteville, TN initially to catch the line early because I was worried it would lose strength at is entered Alabama (it did). In Huntsville, we got one helluva lightning show, though.

Fayetteville, TN and parts east toward Huntland, TN:

Huntsville, AL: I could post hundreds of lightning pictures from the Huntsville area. Instead, I’ll ┬ápost one picture of damage and then a lightning compilation video.

20150701 Storms over Moore’s Mill, AL

On 7/1 a rather decent storm (for Alabama standards, that is) came into the area. Unfortunately, I couldn’t chase because I was working. But I put the GoPro out on the patio, hit record, and came back an hour later hoping I got at least something. It wasn’t much, but dammit, it was something!
