Thundersleet in New Baden, IL - February 25
HD DASHCAM CLIP: 'Thundersleet' lightning strike in New Baden, IL
Quick post to show some of the 'thundersleet' (lightning during sleet) we experienced here Monday night. I saw a few snowflakes mixing in during this event as well. At the time of this posting, we're now completely changed over to rain, and so I have yet to see how much snow accumulation we'll see here, if any.
After seeing a few distant flashes outside and hearing deep rumbles, I went out for a few minutes to try and grab some stills. When I got back home, I left the car power on to keep WxWorx lightning data fresh in case there was anything worth going back out for. As a result, the dashcam was running for this fairly close CG right as more sleet started here in town:
I mostly 'struck out' on the stills captures, with the lens pointed just a little bit too far right for this bolt to the south. As paltry as this is, it at least keeps the "lightning stills every month" streak going.
