May, 1998. My first season of storm chasing led
and me to all kinds of beautiful and menacing clouds. On the
last day of that chase, we ran into a shaft of hailstones
ranging in diameter from 3 to 5.5 inches.
May 11, 2000. This was an extremely tornadic storm which
dropped its first funnel around 6:30pm on the eastern side of
Cedar Falls, Iowa. From there, the storm moved east for hours,
producing tornados well into the evening.
May, 2001. We chased a group of thunderstorms like this one through southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. They showed off some great structure and a few funnels.
