Another high end day in Dixie Alley that pretty much busted completely.
After chasing in Texas the day before, I arrived to my hotel room in Ruston, Louisiana around 2am. The MCS was raging through northern Louisiana and blew quite a few trees over along I-20. I guess this MCS would stabilize more than expected.
I awoke in the morning with storms already blowing up in Eastern Oklahoma/Western Arkansas and down into Texas. On the road I went, northbound out of Ruston to El Dorado and then east to Monticello. I finally stopped in DeWitt as it became obvious this event would bust.
Brian Emfinger and another chaser named Eric (forgot last name, sorry) stopped by for a chat before I decided to head home.
