Can't sleep clowns will eat me

So I'll post some old favorites.

The Severe Storm Lab out of Colorado. They were out chasing with the TIV vehicle (now featured on the Travel Channel).

These guys (Severe Storm Lab) are my heroes. My geek is showing.

Note: I have it labeled as OU mobile storm lab. This is wrong.

I love dramatic cloud photos, and sometimes you just get lucky, don't you punk.

This is in Reno County, Kansas. Chased a squall for a couple hours, found a great wall cloud. Watched 15 tornados drop in 8 minutes (yup, up and down that quick). This couple pulled up next to me and asked what to do, it was there first tornado, and they wanted to see it.
I was changing lenses and was distracted (not a good trait of a chaser). I told them to go up the road about a mile and you could see it well. One mile up the road is where the debris cloud is on the ground. I took a picture before they went to OZ.
If your interested, this is the chase:

More the next time I can't sleep.

::laughs:: I can't believe you sent tourists toward the debris cloud.

Wait. Yes I can. :-)
