Well, an exciting week for myself, Aaron(our oldest son) and AJ(our youngest son). I pulled off 2 chases this week, one in Illinois by myself and yesterday from Ashland, MO back to St. Charles County. This second chase I was assisted by both my son’s, Aaron is 18 and AJ is 10, this was AJ’s first chase. I will say he had some nerves but handled it better than I expected.
Both chases proved to be a success in my mind, wall clouds were witnessed on both events and a small funnel cloud was seen west of Girard, IL on Tuesday. We streamed video both days with what I thought was dramatic video of a wall cloud traveling over St. Charles county. Images and Video can be seen on our Facebook Page.
Look for more severe weather coverage as the spring continues, I have 80 hours off from mid May- mid June.
