Thanks to the hard driving of my buddy @WxMstr yesterday, we got back in front of this storm in Nara Visa, NM just in time to watch this supercell with stunning sunset colors and lightning. Got to time-lapse this for over 30 minutes…glad we didn’t miss it! #nmwx #stormhour

I would be remiss to not mention that today is the 15-year anniversary of the 6/12/04 Mulvane, KS #tornado. I had not the greatest view and shot not the greatest video with not the greatest camcorder... I was in my early 20s and fairly new to chasing. Who else was there?
#OTD two years ago, one of the craziest tornado intercepts of my life near Carpenter, Wyoming. Tracked this tornado starting near Grover, Colorado into Wyoming and then filmed 3 more tornadoes as the storm tracked into Nebraska
