Doug and I drove into Northwest Oklahoma where we had a good feeling that supercells would develop.  Our forecast couldn’t have been farther from correct and it looked like we were headed toward a blue sky bust.  We spent the better part of two hours a few miles southwest of Shattuck taking landscape photos.  Near sunset, storms started approaching from the southern Texas Panhandle and we observed these from Canadian to Wheeler.  Several attempts at lightning photography were made, but the results were generally less than spectacular.
