We usually dont get days with slow moving tornadic cells but today was the day.  Several storms dropped a total of (10) tornadoes per nws in northern illinois.  We were on several of the cells and may have had 1 or 2 just barely in frame.  But a great day for storms in the area.

You like shelf clouds? We like shelf clouds!  Another very photogenic shelf crossing northern illinois to round out the season.
