… shortly before it happened.
We had some storms that rolled through the St. Louis area last night. They did quite a bit of damage in the outlying areas with trees uprooted, some roofs damaged and power lines down in various areas. The sky was a weird shade of yellow/orange and between rains, I got the drone out and flew it for a short while from my backyard. The video didn’t come out as cool as it actually looked but it was still interesting with the lightning in the distance.
I was cutting my grass this afternoon and the sky was getting darker by the minute. I was hoping I’d get the grass done before the rain started. Once I saw that I was going to be able to finish the mowing I started thinking about how cool the sky would look from the drone, so I got it out and took a quick flight. If you look carefully you can see lightning in the distance. I had to bring it down a couple minutes earlier than I wanted to as I was getting high wind warnings.
