Sudden Thunderstorm

Thurs, 2:47 pm CDT -- I drove right into the middle of a severe thunderstorm. Torrential rain, high winds, zero visibility. Hail. Lightning in all quads, and occasionally very nearby.

I seldom get spooked by these storms when I'm driving. But when visibility went to a couple car lengths I pulled over. I took shelter under an overpass. So did a lot of others.

It only lasted about 10 mins. But it was cool.
