Bust is such a subjective term. I saw some pretty clouds ... got some hail ... even if it was melted and pea-sized ... meanwhile, everyone and their mother saw a tornado in Texas and just out of our time-reach in the Garden City area ... oh well. I couldn't get off work until 3PM anyway, so we did the best we could.
Brief synopsis: Met with Cameron Redwine and we drive to Kansas to watch a storm pop as forecast on the dryline. The only problem was the surface moisture had all but mixed out, so the updraft was unable to sustain itself. It died quickly and we were left sitting under it, barely even wet. We did see a wild fire on the way in ... and the sunset was beautiful. So, how about some pictures and maybe a video/slideshow?
