Birthday Chase 12-27-08





My Brother and I decided to chase down in Northern Texas today and last night. We basically pulled an all nighter, well I did for the most part because I drove from Denver all the way to the target in Gainesville Tex. I will total up the mileage latter but I know I managed to get over 1000 miles so far and we are heading back to Amarillo, Tex. This late December chase was amazing and probably the best Bday present I could receive!

Early AM Chase in OK/TX

Michael and Eric went after the line of storms approaching from the west early this morning. You can see them where the white arrow is above. This setup netted no tornadoes but some severe hail and high wind reports. Still a very spring like system for Christmas week and Michael's birthday today!
