I ended up going out for just over a half an hour Saturday to grab a few quick shots. The storms were strongly outflow dominant and not worth following any farther east. I chose not to leave again for the unexpected increase in tornado risk after dark, since it would have required more than 2 hours worth of driving to reach. These two images were taken in the Bartelso/Okawville area.

It appears things will quiet down for about a week before the next round of severe weather potential arrives.
