Small SDS Relief

hey mellisa you should make a run to the states - we are about to kick off the season soon (in fact we got a good one here in Fontana, California today - 6 roofs removed by a twister!)
HEY we were spc tornado warned and no one posted a target? whats up with that?
ahhhhh heck
 
I left a curse on the US 2005 season so it would be the bad season that we are due while I am gone...just kidding! I will be jealous watching events over there on my laptop this coming spring.
 
If anyone is really bored and wants something convective to look at, we got pea-sized hail today in Melbourne.
You got hail? Now I'm jealous. :roll:

But I did get to see my first anvil crawlers on Friday night. Just beautiful.
 
Heck, I had some rather pathetic thunderstorms last night around and just after midnight and I must say even the few flashes of lightning and claps of thunder from that excited me!

Maybe there can be enough storms here and there to allow us to get through this boring period, before the main season starts. I think March may be the month where SDS is highest, because it's the first month most of us expects some severe activity and when there is none, it makes us that much more impatient. I many regards, January is an easier month, since few people are really expecting any activity then. But at least, storms or not, maybe we will get some nice days this month with warmer temps and a bit more sunshine.

I am in great need of seeing a thunderstorm. After watching the ones out in the Southwest desert on my computer, i think i need to get out and see some. Today might be a good day in the deserts though.
 
The most SDS relief I've gotten was when I noticed that the shape of the towel on my floor resembled the radar image for a classic supercell. It had a hook echo and the "flying eagle" shape and everything! All that, and I've never even been chasing.
 
George, I was hopin to see you in chat last night so we could discuss our "storms." Here in the SDF area, we got a nice show between about 1 and 2am. The lighning was beautiful, but I never had the digicam going when the lightning was. I only got one capture, and it's not even of the lightning itself...but after months of deprivation, it is certainly welcome.

Nice temps are good for SDS relief as well... Although METAR's are showing mid 30's as of 19Z, it feels more like mid 50's with the full sunshine. Snow is melting very fast :eek:
 
HEADS UP texas panhandle - look what we are sendin your way - could be a season opener - southern arizona has just been warned with LARGE hail possible - may provide some relief and maybe a good time to dust off the equipment, maaaybe
 
SDS Relief in Pancakes??

I got a bit of SDS relief the other morning when I was making pancakes for breakfast. I heated up the griddle, mixed up the pancake batter and poured four cakes out on the griddle. I find that to make the pancakes round, you have to pour the batter on in a clockwise motion.

To my surprise, one of the pancakes, after I flipped them over, had a nice swirl, counterclock-wise. It had a nice dark brown band spiraling in. It even had a outflow boundary from the excess batter when I flipped it over. It would've gotten a overshooting top if I hadn't smothered in with butter peanut butter and syrup. Yum-Yum!! :p

A good day for SDS relief: Going to a storm spotter class. I went to a class in Clatonia, NE. On my way in, I passed thru the damage path left by that Hallam tornado. The most striking feature I can see is the tops of the trees in a wide swath had nothing left but large tree trunks. :shock: At the class, we saw numerous videos from the past storm season and the most noteable one was the Hallam NE storm and damage footage.

Sigh! :roll: Two more months until it's CHASE TIME!! :twisted:

What did you find funny? The brown swirl in the pancakes or the butter/peanut butter and maple syrup on the cakes? Wait until you hear how I like to have my ham/cheese sandwich with butter on top and peanut butter on the bottom. YUM YUM YUM... :lol: LJK.
