Thanks for sticking with us! I am not so happy to announce that we have still not been able to see a tornado. However, we have deployed on a few storms. Some tornadoes were reported with the storm, but it is what we call an “HP” or high precipitation storm so the visibility of the tornado was very low due to the copious amounts of precip.
Last night we deployed on a storm north of Scottsbluff, NE. The storm was looking decent on radar and had a beautiful wall cloud on it…that was until we deployed on the storm. The inflow to the storm was so cold, it wasn’t hard to imagine why the storm died. I was starting to wonder why I didn’t bring my winter jacket to stay warm.
In any event, today has been classified as a down day. The area we would target is just too far out of reach for our crew today. We are all pretty exhausted from spending the last week in a car. So some well needed R&R is in order! Along with an actual meal! Below are some pictures from various storms we have deployed on this week.
