Norman County MN / Clay County, July 7th, 2016

So today was a day we didn't really expect much to happen, as can be seen by the 20z (3pm) Outlook from the SPC.

Now, for the actual storm reports, things were a little different.

Days like this happen.  It happened also to happen while I was taking some much needed time off out in lakes country.  Well, no rest for the wicked, as it was pile into the truck, and off we went!

Since I didn't have most of my storm chasing gear with me not all of my photos were able to turn out the way I wanted.  Normally when I'm chasing I have multiple cameras with me and a ton of other gear.  This chase was fairly simple, laptop, couple of cameras, and a bottle of water.  The downside is, I don't have the GPS geotagging for all the photos, so it'll be a rough guess as to where I was at.  However, it also was one of my more enjoyable chases of the year!

Let's get straight to the pictures!
Nice blocky wall cloud here.  No rotation. 


More shelfy!

This is an awesome look at the feeder band.

Bob's road.

Rain foot!

Nice panoramic!

Now, we are in the middle of winter, with cold, cold temps around.  Just the other day, this is what I saw as I went to bed. 

At least the days are getting longer, and before you know it, we'll all be out enjoying our fine summers here in the valley! 

Until then, stay warm!
