On May 23, I chased with Brad and Dayna Rousseau, Matt Grinter, Dave Lewison, Scott McPartland and Stephen Barabas. We targeted southeast Colorado and ended up at La Junta on a tornado-warned storm.
The storm moved north of La Junta but did not seem intent on producing a tornado, despite a report about this time (2 p.m. mountain time). It developed the telltale “greenage” color that usually indicates hail. We ended up with scenes of desolate beauty.
