May 30th was Caryn’s first solo chase this year. While I was on tour in Oklahoma, she went out and caught a beautifully structured supercell that developed on the Palmer Divide and tracked eastward along I-70.
Since Roger was unable to make the Palmer Divide storm, I thought it would be a good idea to keep peace in the family and go chase it myself. Errrr…..actually, I LOVE doing this stuff. There was no need for Roger to ask me twice! I was gone and out the door with a CHARGED camera in hand.
As I drew nearer the Agate exit, I kept my eye on this beautifully formed supercell south of I-70. There was very obvious rotation and my first thought was, “could it possibly turn out to be another “Limon day”? (the speedometer sure started acting like it.) Ma Nature may have robbed me of another show of 6 tornadoes but the following pictures were just as spectacular. I had a great vantage point on I-70 east all the way towards Genoa. Enjoy!
