DAILY REPORT - THE FINAL REPORT!!!

Well its been fun. Hope you have enjoyed watching and reading as much as I have enjoyed chasing and posting. For the record, we had to leave North Platte, Nebraska this morning - just as all the storms started going. I hear of 50 tornado reports so I am a little miffed by that. In fact we did 800 miles today to get to Dallas Fort Worth in time for tomorrow's flight at 1550.

Total miles for the trip, 8,400 in all - pretty impressive huh. Will need to go on a diet when I get back - a storm chasers diet is made up of one fast food joint after another at all times of the day!

Please feel free to post any comments you may have on the reporting of this chase. Also, keep an eye on Net-Weather - when a hurricane threatens the US mainland, I intend to be there!

All the best

    Usually the way. :roll:

    But it's been a pleasure to read your reports, and your pics have been outstanding to say the least. And thank you for taking the time and trouble to report your daily stories to us.

    Have a safe journey home. :D

    Phil.

    Yes thanks for your accounts and pictures, they were trully great. I bet it is hard to get across how scary it must have been 'core' punching through storms and the golf ball sized hail you accountered.

    Glad your safe and see you back here on Net-Weather soon - Thanks! :D

    Hi Matt, and all, we are still out here just tomorrow and thursday to go then flying back on friday. Saturday was a great day over 80 reported tornados just about every chaser was in the area inclueding Josh Wurman and Geoff Petroski we see many funnels some touch downs and huge cloud development ending with a lightning display that I doulbt I will ever see in my life again if i count i would estimate 6 flashes a second but could have been more! we were 50 miles down the line from Halem which got hit hard the biggest problem was that a lot of these Tornados were forming after dark some chasers got hit we slipped to the end of the line and out of danger, I know some uk groups had a scary time trying to get out after dark! there is so much to write yesterday we see 2 mile wild tornados! yer know they dont look like tornados till they come after you and you have to run away! lol anyway im on a PDA so cant read all Matts reports so will write more when I get home ttfn everyone, great pic Matt. Steve.

      Any rain should be welcome looking at the parched ground but intense downpours aren't enough. Thunderstorms bring the risk of flash flooding as the rain hits the hard, dry ground. Read the full update here
