not much luck

The past two days have led to very little luck in the chase department.
Thursday night was a chase through Northwest Iowa, but mostly just neat clouds, lightning, wind, and a fair share of people out in front of the small town bars pointing up at the sky. “Looky dere Earl, bet you never seen nuttin like dat befur”. Rural Iowa life is great!
Last night was more eventful as we chased into Northern Missouri, drove through some very strong winds and heavy rain, while the sun was filtering in with an eerie yellow glow. Did see a nice double rainbow, too. Not sure it was worth driving 400+ miles, but as always if you don’t go you’ll never know.


stormy night??

As the tornado watches are issued it sparks some curiosity as to whether we will have an active late afternoon/evening across Iowa.  The way I see it, it all depends on that pesky cap and when it breaks.  Time will tell, but I was sure to top off my fuel tank and charge batteries last night just in case.
