April 30, 2012 Texas Panhandle Storm Chase

After two weeks of relatively inactive weather across the southern and central plains, finally an opportunity for another storm chase presented itself. April 30 had some promise for severe weather and I was anxious to do some travelling and chase in my favorite part of the country, the Texas panhandle!

April 14, 2012 'High Risk' Oklahoma & Kansas Storm Chase

Saturday April 14, the main event that the three of us were waiting for had finally arrived. A high risk day across the central plains, one that had already made the record books before it even began! The team was excited and we all thought and said to each other ‘if we don’t see a tornado today, we are doing something wrong!’.

April 13, 2012 Oklahoma Storm Chase

The entire trip took 15 hours 35 minutes, drove 772 miles, and cost $104.44 in fuel.

Gallery: Incredible lightning over the D/FW Metroplex

Scattered thunderstorms which developed along a southward moving cold front produced some of the most photogenic lightning I have ever captured! These storms brought some beneficial rain to the region, but I think the main headline from this event is the intense and quite impressive night time lightning show.

Galleries: Playing tourist around D/FW
