Departure!

Today begins the chapter in the 2018 Storm Chase.  I will drive to Denver today, and will pick up my two chase partners, Kathryn Prociv and Trevor White tomorrow morning.

I have loaded up the car.  I will do a pre-chase car wash, just so we can see how muddy the car gets during the chase.  I have two more stops before leaving town, but then I’m off chasing the horizon.

We are modern day nomads.  We have no set route, or plan.  Driving to Denver today is about as close to a plan as we have.  While previous generations of nomads followed their food sources, we follow the weather.

Looking ahead to tomorrow’s potential, we could leave the Denver airport and chase eastern Wyoming or western Nebraska tomorrow evening.  The pattern is a bit unsettled, and the models are having a hard time converging much farther out than tomorrow.  This is going to be a tough storm chase, I bet.


Thank you for reading my post, and wish us luck.
