Tough to find much to say about this day.  With very little capping, storms went early and often across the Texas Panhandle.  We drove northwest through Seiling and Vici before dropping back southwest toward Roll and Sweetwater.  Our goal was to stay on the east side of the best storms and see what kind of lightning we could squeeze out of it.  In the end, not that much.

A surge of outflow air moved rapidly southward, leaving dissipating storms in its wake.  We all did manage to drag out a few lightning images from just northeast of Sayre, but overall, it was a rather uninteresting weather day.
