Storm formation over Audubon Cty

Super Cell over Littlefield Lake Exira

These pictures were taken this morning 8.9.09 as the storms were just developing in Western Iowa. There was moderate rotation and a circular cloud formation on the first storm. I stood directly under it and could feel the wind switching directions as it moved over and it had a very strong RFD outflow on the back side. The second round of storms set up like a normal storm front with a small shelf (or Cigar) cloud on the leading edge.
