Over the years, I have had the privilege of embarking on storm chasing trips across a large portion of the USA east of the Rockies, including many non-traditional (outside of the Plains and Midwest) chasing areas. While the endless flat prairies of the Midwest and western Plains states are the most ideal places to view storms in the world, the rest of the country isn't as bad as one might first assume. More challenging, to be sure - but not impossible. Thanks to the unbiquitousness of Google Street View, you can view for yourself literally anywhere in the country you want to see - but I thought I'd post a few of my images from actual chases in these areas.
The point? If you're a chaser with at least some basic knowledge and experience, non-Plains-like or even difficult terrain, trees or an unorthodox location is never a reason to not chase on a day where all of the ingredients for supercells and tornadoes come together, particularly if it's close by or right at home.
