Storms fired along an outflow boundary moving southeast from Oklahoma. During the evening, a line formed that moved across the Metroplex and then stalled just south of the area. A most spectacular anvil crawler show ensued, lasting over 3 hours! This was the best I've seen since 1995.

|The CG slowly fades and breaks into beads.|
|This is an image of a massive lightning discharge that covered the entire sky, from horizon to horizon in all directions.|
