I somehow made it from Colby, KS to the Red River just as that massive tornado started. I saw a large cone in the rain, so went north on 83. Then a large violence t wedge emerged from the rain and headed towards us. We went north through the baseballs and east out on HWY 5. Saw and heard the wedge. Kept tip toeing east and watched the tornado transform into a beautiful white fat stovepipe. Full write up later. Easily a career day for me.
