Yesterday was a travel day, as we decided not to pursue the Iowa threat in favor of staying south and chasing the threat today and tomorrow instead.
We spent a little time touring Oklahoma City. It ended up being a somber morning, as we started out the day by visiting the Oklahoma City Bombing park:
After that, we visited the TWISTEX memorial. The TWISTEX team, which consisted of Tim Samaras, Paul Samaras (Tim’s son), and Carl Young were killed chasing storms in 2013. Tim was a pioneer in chasing storms and developing meteorology instrumentation. He was an incredibly safe chaser, too, so his death was a shock to the storm chasing world.
Today, however, will be an active day. Stay tuned.
