Back to May chasing after a year off chasing the high-plains. A bit of an unusual tour with 3 completely down days, and 3 poor chase days, but also 3 tornado days. All in all we saw 7 tornadoes in 3 states: Nebraska, Texas, and Oklahoma. It felt like a lot of starts and stops in between our three big chase days on the 4th, 7th, and 9th days of the 10 day trip.

The McCook tornado day on May 17th was the first Nebraska tornado I'd seen in 15 years, the last being Chappell, Nebraska in 2004.
