Targeted the triple point today. Ended up getting on a storm in Wheeler, TX and following it into Oklahoma. Positioning wise, it was a good day. Crowds were not that bad. Several nice (but high) funnels, nothing touching ground as far as I could see. Currently in Elk City, OK for the night.

Currently at a fuel stop in Yukon, OK. I'm thankfully a little ahead of schedule - not only that, today's target has shifted to the east. Pretty simple forecast today on a Saturday - which means that the one storm that goes up will have a record number of storm observers on it. I think for the first time, I may have to adjust my positioning strategy to prepare for the crowds.

Special request: No phone calls please

I feel bad having to ask this, but it's a safety issue, so I need to. From this point on, I need to ask everyone to hold their phone calls until after this trip is over. There is never really a good time for me to talk on the phone during a observing expedition. In the morning, I'm often trying to catch up on needed sleep. If I'm not sleeping, I'm on the road, often in unfamiliar places where I need to pay attention to where I am, speed limits, and the same time, monitoring what's happening with the weather and any storms I'm following. I'm becoming less of a fan of being on the cell while driving anyway, but during an expedition the hazard is even worse. So it's not that I don't want to talk, but just to make things a little easier on me, hold off your calls. You can still email me, and if I get a chance, I'll try calling you back. I make a point to update this blog as much as I can to let everyone know what's been happening. Of course, if it's something important, please go ahead and call. Thanks for everyone's cooperation!
