2020 started out very busy with frequent winter weather trips and local coverage of icy roads. Meteorological spring began with events on the first two days of the season. However, the COVID-19 pandemic quickly shut down storm observing trips, with travel restrictions confining all operations to within the St. Louis metro area through the end of May. July brought a major success with a DSLR still capture of a Gateway Arch lightning strike, a ten-year long photo goal realized.
