Cloudy Skies

Storm Chasing with Steve Carey

Thursday, May 26, 2011

There was a decent chance to interect an LP (low precipitation) supercell today in northeastern Colorado; however, a persistent cloud cover prevented the formation of supercells.  It seemed like a long day today…lots of driving, not much too look at, and no payoff at the end.  Many chase days are like that.   I did have a great dinner at Toby Keith’s (he’s some kind of country music singer I think) restaurant in Denver.  The Rocky Mountains are calling me, but it’s off to Amarillo, Texas tomorrow.

A grain elevator complex in Goodland, Kansas. When driving on the Great Plains, you can tell you are coming to a town by seeing the grain elevators in the distance.
