On May 21, 2014, Peggy Willenberg and I moved southwest from our starting point in Sterling, Colorado, to get into position in front of a cell coming out of the Denver area, where a brief tornado was reported near the airport. (There were many tornadoes reported today, but this is the only one that’s yielded convincing video that I’ve seen so far.)
We got in front of the storm north of Bennett and watched it make a serious effort at organizing as it spun.
We followed it east, watching the rotation and staying ahead of the hail. It was a beautiful storm, especially with the green light that suggested how much hail it held.
