4 more days to go...

Right now it's the start of May 23rd... and I got 4 more days to go until I leave for my much needed tornado alley chase trip. I got almost everything all packed already, the trip is paid off except for food and other junk. I am excited, can't you tell? I've been wanting to do this for 9 fricking years. Yes, I said 9. Why the heck did it take me so long? Being in school never helped. I didn't have a fulltime job until late 2004. So now I finally got vacation time and money.

Ron Gravelle, Scott Keddie and I will be leaving this dang boring place on May 27th. Our first night will be in St. Louis, then we are headed off to Nebraska. Hopefully we will catch the next trough in time as it goes through. Should be interesting. Chase season is finally making a return after a very boring death ridge. But of course the GFS has been a roller coaster lately, so who knows. Models can say all they want, but Mother Nature has the final word.

I will try my best to post updates of our chases when I get a chance. But for now, it is almost 1 am, I still need to make my lunch and I am working tomorrow. And I know that this is going to be a long short week.
