Chase Recap:

Not a whole lot to say about this day – Wasn’t able to leave work at 1-1:30 pm like I had wanted to, and had to settle for leaving around 4. Drove up I-35 to 412 west and watched streams as people were witnessing tornadoes out by Woodward. I was still 70-100 miles away and stood no real chance at getting to them.

Got to the storm around Seiling, just as the two supercells were merging into a linear fashion.

All in all a very disappointing day as my target was Seiling to Fairview to Alva triangle and I probably would have gone up 281 to Seiling if I had left a couple hours earlier.

Can’t win them all.
