Skandia, ND (Barnes County) 5-10-16

5-10 is the first real "chase" day we had here around the area.  We knew it was going to be a day where the chance of anything going severe would be slim to none.  However, we used it to try out some new gear and fix a few things, like our position tracking that we are doing so Hutch and everyone back at the station know where I am at and can overlay that position over our radar we use on air, etc.  We were also still waiting on some new gear (4K anyone?) and so it really was a dry run for us at the station to work out all the kinks and make sure in a real event everything worked as planned.

No real chase blog here or story to go with it, just going to toss up some pictures from near Skandia Township.  Most of the photos are all from my phone or table that I use during the chase.

Hope you enjoy!

Pretty clouds....

Ever since I found that dang panoramic option on my phone....
You know I'm all about that base, no trouble....

Leave it to beaver...tail, that is!

Some new livery for one of the Storm Team vehicles.  
"Tower, come right 180 degrees, increase instability and shear, then contact Fargo center on 11.1. " 
Overall, just a fun little 'jaunt around the block' as we like to say.  Home in time to watch the news and get a good night's sleep.

On to the next chase!
