July 16: I caught a few bolts in the Eau Gallie area of Melbourne, Florida, before the rain came. July 16: Another bolt near I-95. July 16: This branch of lightning seemed to reach toward me, making me a bit nervous.
July 18: This storm and budding shelf cloud looked pretty cool passing over Rockledge, but apparently it got a lot more picturesque farther east.
