Departing for the Plains

We are departing for the plains tomorrow morning for our 2 week chasecation. Today I got my serial numbers registered at Waterloo-Wellington airport, saw a nice small storm strutting its structure off this evening, and currently finishing up my packing. Check back here often for updates and some photos.

You can track us here on a spotter network map, and you can also check out my sister's blog. Wish us luck!!!

Chase 2011 Plans in the Works

So, it's a new storm chase season already - how the time flies! This year, I'll be chasing with my friend Tom Stefanac and my sister for about 2 weeks. We'll be departing from southern Ontario on May 13th... which happens to fall on a Friday.... perhaps a good omen? We shall see! The GFS was showing a ridge/omega blocking pattern for our first week, but it seems to weaken and move east with each successive run, which is a good thing! While I am down in the plains, I will post updates here, so check back to keep tabs on what's new and our whereabouts.
