Thanks for viewing!
Later that night the storms make their way toward Wichita county. *My GPS signal is that little circle with the dot in the center*
The storm is closer now and I can see the edge of the shelf cloud. It moves NE out of my path.
Just to my NE now and I am just to the south of the updraft region.
All in all, not to shabby for my first "chase" 2010.
Mesoscale Discussion issued for my target area
Another day of "chasing". This time however, there was actually some instability. The day started out cloudy and drizzly. We were issued a slight risk for severe weather, but all the cloud cover limited thunderstorm development until later in the afternoon. This was another local chase.
Isolated showers and virga in Iowa Park.
On my way south towards Archer City, TX. These are two cells that were heading my way.
This storm is still pretty far away and the Wichita Falls storm is intensifying. I dump this storm and head back to Wichita Falls. Which was a mistake this storm later dropped quarter sized hail in Graham, TX where it reached better moisture.
I get back on the Wichita Falls storm and get caught on 287 in the storms core.Driving on 287 N and heading right into the core of this storm. You can see the rain shaft in the left portion of the photo.
I get out of the Wichita storm and head back to Iowa Park. I stop at the Country Chapel and wait for the sun to come out. I had a feeling there would be a pretty spectacular rainbow.
No lightning photos at all, but I still wouldn't call it a bust. I've got the adrenaline, the desire, and I've got (some) knowledge. All I need now is the storms.

A very large icicle hangs from the roof. It fell shortly after I took this photo.
I used my cross screen filter for this photo.
My shadow and I out on Christmas morning taking
pictures of the snow.
and constructs a "Snow Swan".
Ice at Middle Lake.
The whole lake was under a sheet of ice.
The blustery wind gusts and below freezing temperatures
created these very photogenic ice formations.
