More Thunderstorms, Please

I’ll just say it: Arlington doesn’t get enough good thunderstorms. And when storms do approach, too many times it seems we get a “close call” — like last night, when we caught the edge of a storm and then were forced to watch as lightning flashed in the distance.

C’mon, weather gods, give us some legit wind and hail (without destruction of property or other bad things happening, if possible, although a short power outage would be fine by me).

In any event, it’s with this in mind that we present an image from Flickr pooler Philliefan99. It’s a composite — meaning it’s a combination of multiple shots from last night’s storm — but it’s still cool nonetheless. Something to savor while waiting for the next storm system to fire up (this weekend, perhaps?)
