gallery: June 1, 2012

June 1, 2012: I chased today with Dave Lewison, Scott McPartland, Dayna Vettese, Brad Rousseau, and Simon Eng. Our target was the northern - northeast, really - Texas Panhandle. Storms fired west and east, but none that we targeted sustained themselves. Share

On June 1, 2012, we found ourselves awaiting storms - or the right storm - in Gruver, Texas, with Cloud 9 Tours.

Brad ponders data, or Facebook.

The waiting game with Dave Lewison, Dayna Vettese and George Kourounis.

Storm chasing involves a lot of loitering.

Brad tries on Cloud 9's chicken hat.

There were storms firing to the west, but we weren't sure they were what we wanted.

We went after one to the east, and it was rotating.

The only problem is, it was also dying.

And there goes another vanishing updraft ...

So we ended the day on the edge of a wheat field, watching another dying storm.

Dayna, Brad, Scott, Chris, Simon, Dave.
