Chase Recap:

Kept trying to decide if we wanted to chase or not, and waited for Bart Comstock in Norman for lunch before pulling the trigger and trying to chase this day. Got down to about Hollis before a beautiful tornado happened down by Big Spring – 2 hours south of us.

We blasted down to get on that storm when it was gusting out, but the storm south of it still had a tornado warning so we headed to that.

It was crap, so we followed it for awhile before giving up.

We missed awesome tornadoes near Lubbock.

Stupid chase day, long drive home.
