This first pic here is from near Casselton. Quite the nice day when you see an LP here in North Dakota. We don't see many of them, so this was very nice for a change.
Here's a couple more from coming up on the cell. I took quite the number of photos this day!

Yeah, it had a nice little lowering going on with lots of action. Yep, if it's not an HP supercell.....
I don't know why but this shot from above just sticks with me. I think that's why I decided to post this blog tonight. Even though I don't remember every single detail about this chase, I still remember this photo sticking out in my mind.

One more shot from the day.
Apparently this storm did have a touchdown, but I never saw anything fully condense.

Either way, a pretty nice day in June. And I still think about it 8 year later. Let's hope I still remember it this fondly in another 8 and 28 years.
At least we aren't -30F right now!
