Back Porch Storm Chaser

This was my view of the approaching line of storms to hit DFW from the NNE. We had gusts up to 50 mph and pea sized hail. Our house has a lot of glass exposed to this direction so it sounded a lot worse than it really was. The wind did a pretty good job of moving my heavy stainless steel grill several feet. Note to self: try setting the brake, idiot.

I happened to step out on the porch and decided to reach for my iPhone to see what kind of video I could capture. The lightning you see pounding the ground is largely over or near the city of Roanoke, TX.

All of the monster lightning strikes are in the latter part of the clip so don't give up. Another viewing tip: don't expand to full screen unless blurry shooting steaks of light is your thing.
