On our second day out chasing we decided to head northeast out of Norman toward the Ada, OK area. It wasn't the best area to see storms, but the better area was in rough terrain near the Oklahoma-Missouri border. It's really tough to chase there because of all of the trees and hills. When you have trees and hills it makes it very difficult to see the storms so we avoid chasing those areas as much as possible. The Joplin, MO tornado was in that type of terrain so we were nowhere near that area. My heart goes out to the people of Joplin.
