Lookie Lookie...

What country is Tejas? LOL :wink:

Looking good, wish we had some of those up here in MI... Instead, we got about 6 inches of slush...

TEJAS=spanish for TEXAS (for those northern folk pronounced TA-HAS).

That cell is about 90 miles north of me.

Gotcha... I was trying to play fun on your spelling error (or so I thought), but the joke was on me, :lol:

I have hear similar pronunciation of Mexico...

Usually down here you can hear it pronounced MEH-HI-CO

Looks like we might have a supercell trying to evolved out of that Mess of Convective Stuff down around San Angelo. I went back and forth last night and this morning about heading down there.

It has already surpassed my expectations of what I thought might happen when we had that short back and forth with Graham late last night.

Man, even iffy days in Texas are nice sometimes! I love those big, isolated 70 dbz monsters that good ol' Texas seems to grow in abundance.

Hopefully those cells keep growing and make it into southern Okla. I could use a good evening storm.

Looks like your wish may come true afterall! Those cells developing in SW OK look sweet.

The cells are holding together enough for now. The one over Wichita Falls might head right over me if it stays together. :D
 
I'm so jealous of you guys right now, all I want is a clap of thunder and I'll be content at the moment. Oh well, it's just right around the corner, only a matter of time, I guess :(.
 
Well, I just got back from checking out the storms around my area. I ran into nickel size hail, heavy rain and major lightning.
Although the cell passed through in about 15 minutes, it is enough the calm the SDS for a little while. :D
The locals up in Norman should be getting it soon. It is a fast mover so be ready..lol
 
Wow! It will be awhile till we see that kind of stuff up here. Since we had such a wimpy winter, hopefully we'll have a more active spring. 8)
 
Andrew, I'd have gladly traded with you last night. I love a storm chase as much as anyone but these "home chases" sitting on the porch watching it roll overhead causes me enough concern about property and such to make them less than enjoyable. Tis the nature of our hobby/profession though, we go where the action is. :?
 
I just accept it as part of life of living on the plains. I have lived on the plains my whole life and storms have always been a part of that. They were here a long time before we were and probably will be here long after we are gone. We are just temporarily getting in the way of mother nature.

I quite enjoy close to home storms, you aren't near as stressed as on longer distance chases, and well, if something is going to happen to your house, it's going to happen and really nothing you can do to stop it. If a person is overly concerned about their personal possessions living in tornado alley, maybe they should move to Idaho? There are some sort of natural hazards just about anywhere one lives. Plus, it's actually rather rare for any one particular location to suffer any sort of significant damage from a thunderstorm, even less with a tornado. Any one location is just a pinpoint in the whole scheme of things and most likely will NOT be the location to receive any storm damage.

Awsome picture David!Wish I could have been down in central Texas yesterday.
 
David, I wrote less than enjoyable, not unenjoyable. Also I wrote home, not house. The less than enjoyable aspect of last night's storm was due to concern for my family, not my property. Nothing was written between the lines.

Having lived in central Oklahoma for almost six decades I learned long ago to accept all aspects of this state's weather. I'd rather deal with it than a typhoon at sea, a California earthquake or a tsunami. With that being said I still find it more enjoyable to experience a storm while unencumbered with family responsibilities which have a higher priority.

Sorry, I guess I was confused by where you wrote:

Yes David, I realize the confusion, hence the clarification in a follow up post. Naturally the protection of one's property is a concern, especially when one's family happens to be in it at the time.

How you enjoy storm chasing is your business and how I enjoy mine is mine. A mini-lecture from someone who seems more interested in trying to pick a fight than in discussing last night's storms doesn't interest me. If that is your intent, you have failed. If not, then please accept my apologies and let's move this thread back to the subject you intended when you started it.

Have a nice day! :)

I hear ya. And I'm even in Tejas. LOL!
Seen some convection to my south and north today but nothing near me. See that cell that was in Brazoria Co this afternoon? All I could think was "Happy happy, joy joy". Spring is coming!!! 8)

*sigh*. Maybe tonight will bring me some of the flashing and noise I desire. :lol:
