Storm Chase Trip (4/8 - 4/11)

A special "spot" chase was made during the second week in April 2008 from the 8th through the 11th. Some tornadoes and extreme weather was caught on April 9, 2008 in west-central Texas, including a destructive tornado in Breckenridge, Texas. On April 10, attention shifted east into Arkansas, where extreme flooding was observed.

The chase log for this storm chase is also online and can be seen by clicking the link to it provided below ...

Back In Florida (3/31 - 4/2)

I finally wrapped up a very interesting, fun, and productive 3-month stay in the Chicago area with a storm-chase in Missouri / Arkansas on March 31 (while starting my long drive back to FL). April 1 and 2 were travel days and I finally arrived safely back in FL during the morning of April 2.

In the images above, a severe storm can be seen in SW Missouri on March 31. In the middle, highway 78 stretches through rural Alabama and Mississippi en-route to Florida on April 1. To the right, The "Weatherlab" portable weather station gets a new Oregon Scientific WMR-968 plus a re-design for storm chase season 2008!
