One more tor!

Added one more tornado to my 2011 count - a short-lived, non-condensed elephant trunk near Hovan, South Dakota yesterday! Got a brief video capture of it...should have it up before I leave!

An update to explain why I won't be explaining anything for a very long time. This title is ridiculously long. Seriously, who does this?


I ship off to Navy basic training August 3rd. Contract signed, all hoops jumped through...time to head out. So, for now, my chasing career is over.

I'll probably be able to get out at some point next year...should be done with A school sometime in January, so...maybe eligible for some leave in June, or, at least, that's what I'm hoping. If not, 2011 was a year for the ages anyway, I suppose...

I'll leave you with a list of my top 5 tornadoes of the year:

1. Canton, OK (Big surprise)
4. Stovepipe in IA April 9th (no video)
