This day was the the reason I made the long trip out to Nebraska the day before.  Was some decent potential for tornadoes this day and it did not disappoint.  I got to see a true plains tornado from maybe a mile away all while enjoying the trip with Jake and meeting new people.  This is the reason we chase for many to see a tornado like this.  during this time we also ran into some pretty decent sized hail while trying to get back to the storm because a hwy was closed due to a tornado.  The nice thing was we found a very slow gravel road to play on for the 1st 3/4 of the chase so there was not much traffic during this time, maybe 1 car.  Thanks to my off-line maps, was easy to find and had a great view.  This day was a fun day. Corey Bull also managed to get in the action on time as well. (Bill)
