Currently parked off of I-64 in Poseyville, Indiana for a brief data stop, email check and blog update. I'm only about 5 hours from home, but I'm going to stop soon for the night. The pattern is shutting down for a while, with a few chances remaining up in the Dakotas by the end of the week. West Virginia may even get a decent event Saturday, with a nice upper jet and deep moisture at the surface.

This weather expedition has been remarkable in that once we started out, we never had a 'down day' - every day from the 21st to the 26th was an expedition day! Consequently I haven't had any time to go through the material captured in the past week. I haven't even had a chance to look at my HD Oklahoma tornado video from Saturday, and I have hundreds of photos to go through when I get back home. I've only been grabbing a few here and there to post quickly, as I've been too tired at the end of each day to sit and sift through everything, let alone edit and size a bunch of photos to post. Furthermore, it's hard to really get a good look at these on the laptop, so it will be nice to work with things on the big monitor at home. Sometime in the next week or so I'll get a full Chase 2008 gallery up with everything included, as well as a few video clips. Here are a couple shots from the last memory card download today.

Nice, wondering where you ended up, at least you avoided the circus in Kansas (for the most part). Take care, and congrats!
