Chase Recap:

A day that had been looking good on the models for a few days previous ended up quite disappointing.

We headed out from North Platte with our first stop in Alliance and then into South Dakota where storms had fired.

We got into some hail in Oelrichs before following the storms east through the indian reservation.

Eventually got some decent shelf cloud pictures near Martin, SD before heading back towards OKC to end the chase vacation of 2012. We stayed in Kearney that night and drove back to Norman the next day.
