So, here I am again. Posting from the lovely Days Inn in Woodward, Oklahoma. After last year's trip I was ready to do it again. No question. But, then I got engaged and did not want to spend the money since I was also spending money on a wedding. Well, everything worked out and here I am. Money wound up not being an issue and I was able to go again.
After driving for many, many hours across the country, we arrived in East Norman, Oklahoma at around midnight on Saturday night. After chatting with Roger and Elke for a little while bed starting calling my name so I got some much needed rest, albeit too little.
Our first official "chase day" was yesterday, and we did not get to do much chasing. The technology was not cooperating and neither was the weather. So we decided to head west to set up for day two. There was a thunderstorm to our northeast that was producing quite a bit of lightning so we had a nice show.
