I chased some storms on Saturday. I was downstate around Pontiac and Kankakee and found some dark clouds, strong winds, and moderate downpours. At one time it was dark enough to resemble early evening.

One of the things I love about living in Illinois is that out on the prairie it’s easy to see storms in the distance.

I was able to drive around this rain shower in the photo above and come at it from the backside. It was just a bunch of rain.

This last picture is the cell that’s in the video at the beginning of this post as it approach the rest area on I-55 south of Pontiac.

When I’m on the ground I do enjoy Mother Nature’s “punch”.
