June 27th 2015 North Dakota Tornado Outbreak

19 confirmed tornadoes.  Hell of a chase day which started at Walhalla, ND on the Canadian border waiting for the first storm to drop south to the US side and ending up in the RFD blast of the final tornado of the day in the far southeastern corner of the state near Fairmount, ND.  I saw 7 of them ranging from landspout-ish to start with to a large, but weak, stove pipe.  Pretty much 8 hours of action!  The Adams, ND was by far the most photogenic of the bunch.  The strongest was the low visibility Holmes / Hatton EF2.

June 17 2015 Chase in South Dakota

This was not a planned chase per se.  My Daughter and I we on our way back from the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming and made a side trek so she could see Mt Rushmore.  So why not?

June 7th Central Minnesota Backyard Lightning

Got a nice little surprise as not all the cells died off at sunset in the northwest flow.  A pretty little storm with a lot of CC and an occasion CG passed over the lake behind our house.  All the images can be seen HERE!

May 17 2015 Central Minnesota Storms

What was supposed to be THE DAY off this system ended up being crap. No directional shear and weak capping lead to some pretty pathetic storms. You can see all the images from this day HERE.
