"Storms That Have Been Chased"-------Episode 4: July 6th






It was a casual day but not casual enough to ignore how humid it was for July.....it's supposed to be 100 these days in Greeley, Colorado....not so much.....as we will see my car goes for a stroll nearby Greeley to intercept a cell moving from the northwest to southeast crossing over 85 passing through Eaton, CO. I left seeing the cell on radar in a blip form giving me and the storm time to be at it's full stage....this is when I went to kidnap a friend....Katie Wiseman was about to experience yet not an extreme chase, but her first local storm chase....it was a moments' decision because I just showed up, had some candy than said want to go for a drive....she knew it was a storm chase....I had planned on not being out for very long....
We drove out and intercepted a high based rain storm which was fun to get out and just be with the storm....later we saw cells develop south and east of Brighton producing quite a gusty outflow in the distance. Mammatus would soon be the last things both our eyes would see before heading back into Greeley for a nice bbq....chicken on the grill! next blog will not be as dramatic but this day has uniqueness in itself....come back for some more "Storms That Have Been Chased........."
