Latest image from Verne's mobile picture phone. This cell went on to produce F2 tornado damage in the town of Surprise, NE (of all places) Our route took us:
Started in Wakeeney, headed north on 283 and then over to 183 through Alma, NE
Then we went through Holdredge to Hastings, NE where we drove past Tim Marshall watching a rapidly rotating tail-end-charlie that came very close to dropping a funnel many times.
We then got up to I-80 where we took the Seward exit and got cored by intense rain on Hw92
We made it into Omaha ahead of the now MCS line, where we had dinner at the Toca Bell.
We watched a flying eagle approach Lincoln so we decided to shoot for that - as soon as we got down infront of it where it could pass by us, it weekened and died off. Watched lightning all night and then bedded down east of Blair, NE (home of Mike H!)
