There were a few impressive events that occured in my 'home chase area' while this blog was on its 4-month hiatus. Here is a recap of some highlights from mid-September through the end of the year.

- Lightning over St. Louis - September 18, 2010

I try to be downtown for most of the thunderstorms that pass over St. Louis, and in 2010, it was late September - not spring or mid-summer - that brought the best-of-the-year display of nighttime lightning over the city. The next day featured a colorful sunset over the Arch and downtown. [ View Photos and Video ]

- Hail, Clinton County, IL - October 12, 2010

One of the reasons I moved to the Midwest - severe weather season just keeps going and going, even into the fall. This deluge of small hail covered the ground along Highway 160 in New Memphis on October 12. [ View Photos ]

Blowing snow creates very icy conditions on Interstate 64 in St. Clair County, IL on December 12, causing multiple accidents caught on tape - including one involving a tractor-trailer leaving the road and crashing into the woods. [ View Photos and Video ]

A snowstorm moves into St. Louis on Christmas Eve, blanketing the area with up to 5 inches of snow. Christmas morning, the eagles were out in full force in Alton and Grafton, IL, with two posing in front of an American flag. [ View Photos ]
