Chase Log

June 13, 2009 Adams County, Colorado Tornadic Supercell

June 13th was the arrival day for my next tour. As such, Murphy’s Law always seems to be in place! After a visit with Caryn at her horse show (which she kicked butt!), I frantically drove to the hotel, grabbed all the guests and off we went to chase this beast, just north of my house!

It was a fantastically structured monster, with a classic supercell appearance, clear slot with rapid rising scud east of it, long streaming beaver tail and barber pole appearance to the updraft. Although it did not produce any significant tornadoes, it did produce two small, but photogenic tornadoes. I was in such a hurry I forgot to grab my still camera, but I always have my dashcam to shoot video and grab a few stills from.
