OK, some good pics from today.

The first is just a quick pic of the state of our vehicle - it was washed soon after - I wonder why?

This is us behind the Dopplar 2 truck, Dopplar 3 was behind plus a whole load of other storm chasers. Dopplar 1- no idea!

Amazing image of the wall cloud region - at this point a Tornado Warning was issued for the town of Russell just to our NE - we were on an intercept course.

Another pic of the awesome cloud structure over our heads. Again, lots of upward motion - it felt like the storm would produce. It was dopplar indicated with rotation at the time and had a Tornado Warning on the storm.

OK, now we got worried and thought well if this produces, we have to move real quick. Being on I80 E, we could only move in one direction, maybe ot would be the wrong direction - getting a bit tense now.

Awesome, simply awesome. Hopefully I will be able to add video soon but the upward motion was fantastic.

The storm soon died before producing a tornado but if it had produced then we would have been in a good location - in my eyes and that of a Storm Chaser, that is a success and not a bust - position is everything. See the nice hail shaft?
