Chase Recap:

Had no plans to chase, and was spending a Saturday catching up on chase logs, pictures, videos and planned to do some yard work including cutting down some trees.

That stopped quickly when I realized a tornado watch had been issued to our west. I headed out to I-40 west then up towards Seiling. The storms to the west were dying out, but the storm by Sayre looked nice so I headed down there. That died off/evaporated as we neared Clinton, so we headed to the crap coming out of the Wichita Mountains. It was obviously non tornadic and quite elevated.

Headed home. Waste of a Saturday.
