Nice shots of the tornadoes! It's always amazing how rope tornadoes stretch out with the bottom half still a straight column. Last week's storms didn't disappoint. It was cloudy most of the morning too, but it finally cleared a few hours before the storms came through. Near st. louis, I encountered a very heavy rain curtain and gusty winds. There was a shelf cloud, but it wasn't real impressive. I maybe saw a single lightning bolt the whole time. It was even windier behind the front which caused a good sized tree branch to snap. Not bad for the first severe weather event of 2014. Spring's so close yet still so far.

Excellent report and great early-season catch, Dan! Dawn - go to the Storm Track Web site, then go to the Target Area section and click on the picture linked from L. Kimbrel's report - I think that might be the one you're looking for. If you don't know the Web location for Storm Track, just do a Web search and it will come up.
