Chase Log - 4/19/2011

Worst chase of my career to date.

Chased with Jesse Risley and Kevin Crawmer. Started out in Springfield, headed SE to Vandalia. Started heading NW when an isolated cell took a right turn, started riding the warm front, and producing tornadoes. Caught this cell just west of Carrollton, IL, lost data, and found out too late that storms had popped ahead of it. raced east to get on the new storms, and missed a view of two beautiful, large cone tornadoes by a combined distance of about 8 miles. Incredibly frustrating. Still, good to have these days every once in a while, I suppose...makes it sweeter when you do get something.

Possible redemption tomorrow...probably chasing southern IL again.
