Heading Home from Kansas

Bill Oosterbaan, Steve Barclift, Rob Forry, and I have had a fun time chasing low-top supercells today in Minnesota on our way home from two action-packed days in Oklahoma and Kansas. Now, at the end of day three, we’re heading east on I-94, with Minneapolis fresh behind our backs and seven hours of driving ahead of us.

The four of us witnessed several tornadoes–how many, it’s hard to say for sure, but we’ve agreed upon six–during yesterday’s massive outbreak. We tangled unsuccessfully with two supercells before hitting paydirt with a storm that dropped a string of swirlies around Hesston, Goessels, and points beyond. And yes, I shot some decent video, which I’ll post on YouTube once I’ve edited it, and also subsequently embed in a post here on Stormhorn.com. Consider this little placeholder to be a friendly heads-up that more is on the way in a day or two. Till then, ciao.
