Illinois pulse severe storms - July 12

A bit of a letdown today, as downstream convection fouled the environment for a would-be bow echo complex moving southeastward out of northeast Missouri. My chase was short, going only as far as Hillsboro, IL (east of I-55) to position for the bow echo that wasn't. As is typical for midsummer high-cape, weak-upper-flow days in the Midwest, there was lots of lightning, heavy rain and a few interesting cloud features, but not much in the way of photo-capturable material. I did get hit by a small but intense downburst south of Hillsboro that shredded trees along the road, but it happened too fast to get cameras on it.
