May 17, 2011: Though I knew the best chance for storms was in northeast Colorado on what was a marginal day, I decided not to go for them, because I wanted to be in good position to chase the next day farther south. So I split the difference, driving from Amarillo to southeast Colorado - then Kansas and Oklahoma - seeing lots of blowing dust and road construction, along with picturesque ruins and a nice sunset. That's four states in one day, and I didn't get near the tornadic storms in northeast Colorado. Share
