Ah, but someone DID see it, and catch it on tape! :D My chaser, Lance Ferguson, caught the entire lifecycle of the tornado from just a few miles away. He bagged it just as I finished the trip from home to the station to pick up a photographer for my own chase (which was a bust, but oh, well...)

Started and finished as a rope. I saw only a short part of the raw tape, but it looked like the wedge lasted about 3-4 minutes.

It'll be on our 10pm newscast tonight - which will air more like 11:30 because of NCAA basketball.

It was David. we were only about 1/4 mile away before it dissapated. We werent even sure it was a tornado until we reviewed the video and saw the debris swirl. It was a really fun chase with good results (alot of luck thrown in).

NOTE I made a special effort not to cuss while anybody was shooting which is hard to do sometimes when your excited. :lol:

Sherman's Observations

Hey ya'll (I am spending way too much time in the south),

Yesterday was very fun. Went out with a couple of chasers out towards Watanga, Weatherford, Geary & Okarche. Saw four funnel clouds / tornadoes. Also saw penny size hail just west of downtown Okarche around twilight. Let's see if this is an indication of a busy storm chasing season.
