I got to go storm chasing with Eric Whitehill yesterday once again.
There is nothing quite like the thrill of seeking out a storm and seeing what, if anything, it will do.
Sometimes it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Will it turn severe?
Will it give us a nice shelf cloud to look at?
Or a wall cloud?
Or a funnel or tornado?
We didn’t see much of anything yesterday other than some nice green clouds producing lots of hail and some ragged wall clouds.
But I’m cool with that.
Because if we’re not seeing big time severe storms, then that means it’s not impacting lives and property.
Yes, I’d love to see awesome storm structure.
I’d like to see another tornado.
My desire is to have this happen out in the middle of an open field, affecting no one.
But should it happen otherwise, that’s why we chase.
We follow the storms to warn folks of what we’re seeing.
So my mixed feelings will always be there when I chase.
I want to see some cool things, but I don’t want them to impact people.
But if the latter happens, we’ll be there to let you know.
