A Storm Chase
(Epic mini-timelapse of funnel cloud occurs at 4:58)
People often ask me what a storm chase is like -- and I generally respond with "8 to 10 hours of tedious driving with maybe 15 minutes of either awesomeness or terror... if you're lucky". I recently purchased a $40 dashcam from Amazon (a G1W, for you tech nerds), so I thought it would be fun to show a typical storm chase, from beginning to end. Chase starts in Kearney, Nebraska, proceeds to Chugwater, Wyoming, then ends in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Along the way, we pass from the great plains of Nebraska to the high plains of Wyoming, get a view of that monument to the Oregon Train, Chimney Rock, and see a beautiful funnel cloud to boot. Total miles traveled: roughly 700. Storms that died before they ever lived: 2. Storms that lived up to their potential: 1. Cows occupying an abandoned Minuteman nuclear missile silo: 7.
Chase happened on May 31, 2014.
