07/05/05 REPORTS: High Plains

What an awesome chase day in ne CO! My son Michael and I left Denver around 3pm and could not catch the line of storms that had formed and was moving south of I-70 near Limon, CO. We checked wifi a couple of times and then headed up I-76 to intercept the cell that was coming south out of NE. We positioned ourself on a hill to the east of Sterling CO and watched the show below:
