But, act up she did, dropping tornadoes near Jamestown and Casselton. And of course, since I had nothing else better to do on my Sunday....
Once I got off I-94, I was treated with this nice 'attempt' at a wall cloud. I say attempt because it was weak.
A few minutes later, it tried to get it's act together just a tad more, including what appears to be a nice look-alike with a rain shaft in there. Nothing tornadic, just some pretty clouds.
Not long thereafter I talked to Brady Herring, and we went our seperate ways. I decided to plow deep into the heart of Barnes County, where I was greeted with a shelf cloud. With something fun going on underneath it.
|And this is....what?|
|And a few minutes later? We see....nothing!|
|Selfie with a Shelfy anyone?|
|One last shot....|
And, we had just a few tornado reports this day in North Dakota. I think at this point we were either tied or leading Oklahoma with the number of official tornado reports for the year.
A very nice chase, and everything worked as planned. My new gear is working awesome, and more upgrades are coming!
The question is, would mother nature keep pace and keep things active this week for us? Oh yes she would!
