gallery: May 23, 2012

May 23, 2012: I chased with Dave Lewison, Scott McPartland, Dayna Vettese, Brad Rousseau, and Simon Eng, targeting southern Nebraska near the Kansas border. Storms formed, but they stayed northeast of us instead of expanding to our location as we'd hoped. Despite a little storminess, I'd call this a bust. But the cows were cool. Share

May 23, 2012, north of Taylor, Nebraska, our convoy encountered a herd of cows.

We waited in southern Nebraska near the Kansas border for storms to fire.

Caption: We took photos and video as we waited...

Dayna snaps a few.

Brad supplicates the sky.

Dayna and Brad's hail shields were not getting a workout.

And we acknowledged that all the storms firing farther north were not going to work their way down the line. This is a look west.

I still parted from the group for a bit and went north but realized I couldn't catch the severe storms.

So I snapped some wildflowers.

I took a few images of growing but still unimpressive storms.

And I saw darkness fall on our hopes for the day as the moon rose.
