   "Suburbia!"
   Time: 7:30 PM CDT : 60X Compression
   Location: Suburbs of N FTW. Blue Mound/Watauga.
   Looking WSW, you can see the Rear Flank Downdraft, RFD, really
   wrapping around. The nose of the RFD gets very wet, a lot of precip,
   and this makes for low scud lowerings and formations of wall clouds
   on this nose. Which is seen on the right side of the brighter RFD in
   this TL.
  
Large 1465k - (7.5 minutes @ 56kb)
Small 767k - (3.5 minutes @ 56kb)

====================================================

   "I had the right framing!"
   Time: 7:47 PM CDT : Still vid capture only
   Location: Same as above
   This is just a video capture of a brief framing of the storm. Maybe I
   should have left it there, because in the TL next one down, you can
   see very suspicious lowerings blocked by that one house roof. But I
   zoom out to wide shot of the whole RFD, as seen by the inset frame in
   the 2nd picture.
  

====================================================

   "RFD going wet."
   Time: 7:48 PM CDT : 60X Compression
   Same as top
   And here's the result. A lot of worrisome lowerings over
   suburbia.
  
   This cell goes on to nearly go directly over the Race Track
   speedway, and I'm seeing if this TL at night is MPG'able.
Large 1000k - (6.0 minutes @ 56kb)
Small 540k - (3.0 minutes @ 56kb)
