Moderate Risk Today
I apologize for the lack of updates. The past 3 or 4 days have either been down or travel. After our last big chase in between two states, CSWR stayed in Boulder while the rest of the crew was in Loveland, CO to do DOW repairs and maintenance. We then drove 4 hours north into South Dakota to then drive 4 hours south the next day. We also had a chase day in Colorado that resulted in a pretty supercell that was not quite able to get its circulation to the ground. My vehicle also continued to break, and Justin had to replace the battery. Yesterday in Colorado a rather unexpected tornado occurred that would have been perfect for deployment. The ingredients didn't seem altogether for tornadoes, but what is called "high plains magic" came through. Now we are somewhat hopeful with a "Moderate Risk" outlook in the region and are awaiting further instruction!
On a personal note, Matt and I celebrated our first anniversary May 28th. We met last year on V2, so this project means a little something extra for us. :)
