Climbing out from Asheville. Note the improved REX Essentials cumulus clouds.
Uh Oh! Descending over central Florida into imposing weather!
Deteriorating fast as I see my first lightning!
Classic cumulonimbus with mammatus base! Not good!
Lightening gets more frequent and floods across the pattern!
Time to turn to final! Like right now!
Welcome relief, runway in sight as storm chases me on final!
Taxiing to National Flight Services, but they've closed off the hanger to weather the storm! Note the nice wet tarmac textures as the rain hits KLAL.
