The fun side of storm chasing

May 14, 2008

We chased the storm from San Angelo to Marble Falls. We experienced the hook in Brady where tree branches and siding were flying through the air. Near Eden, we experienced VERY close lighting. We were all outside watching the storm when the first strike hit VERY close! It was a warning shot that all took seriously. We stayed in the vans for the rest of the barrage of close bolts. Mark was able to capture the initial bolt on video. In Marble falls, we found a fantastic lookout over the city. Mike shot one picture of a possible tornado. Then we experienced the south side of the hook. We measured 62MPH wind gusts before calling it a day.
