May 31, 2013 Storm Chase | Massive Tornado near El Reno, OK

The famous day of El Reno — our view here wasn’t as exciting as others as we stayed to the right of the path at all times, despite the somewhat unorthodox (but not unheard of) track the tornado took. Oftentimes, big and messy HPs along boundaries can behave this way so its always best to keep a clear exit route available as well as some distance, especially initially while a storm is still establishing itself.

May 20, 2013 Storm Chase | Duncan, OK Tornado

While a supercell to our north was doing enormous, untold, historical damage — we were in southern Oklahoma chasing a supercell which went on to produce a cone tornado. For us, this was a worst case scenario from a chase standpoint where we weren’t ready to commit north until it was too late to get south for a better view. Its amazing we salvaged what we did out of this day. Be more decisive kids!
