Saturday was quite a day, as I started my trip by leaving Connecticut at 7:45 p.m. Friday and arrived in Nebraska by about 4 p.m. A Tornado Watch was issued a couple of hours later and then storms began to fire.
The day wasn’t as successful as I would have liked, but not every chase day can be perfect. If anything, most are far from it!
The photo above is facing northwest from Clarks, NE around 7:08 p.m. toward a thunderstorm and what appears to be a rain shaft. That cluster of storms spawned a Tornado Warning about 20 minutes later, but I didn’t see anything photogenic from that.
Radar went in and out during the chase, which is always frustrating. I almost wonder if it was a phone or cell provider issue, because I never actually lost service. I had similar issues with Twitter, but I’m almost always able to sent Tweets via text message as a fall-back.
