Waiting for Initiation

Here in Murdo, SD along I-90 with the TWISTEX crew. They are stopped to re-evaluate their chase plan for the rest of this afternoon. Also here is storm chaser Reed Timmer and his chase vehicle, the Dominator. This seems to be a popular spot because there is a tornado tour van in this parking lot, as well as a handful of amateur storm chasers and photographers. Soon TWISTEX will regroup in a more secluded area and update their specific target based on the atmospheric parameters at hand.

    Glad Timmer is wearing real shoes for once. Hopefully he learned his lesson last year that disasters and flip flops don’t mix.
