After seeing some hot lightning and minor flooding, but not terribly photogenic storms on July 21, Cheryl Chang and I pursued the first storms on July 22. The best part of the chase was traveling through what I call Florida's tropical prairie, which is reminiscent of the Plains. The first view is looking west from Lone Cabbage Fish Camp west of Cocoa; the others are from Osceola County as the storm (really, a line of storms) developed outflowish features. Digital images.

Here's a look at the outflow boundary and development along it (and Cheryl) as the detached shelf slid south. Digital images.

As the storms wimped out, I got a look at tadpoles at the mouth of a drainage pipe (trust me, they're there) and the anvil of the storm that started the unproductive boundary. Digital images.
