July 4th and 6th fireworks, expedition logs for May 18th, 29th and 31st
CHASE LOG: May 18 Rozel/Sanford, Kansas tornadoes
CHASE LOG: May 29 Oklahoma hail and lightning
CHASE LOG: May 31 El Reno, Oklahoma EF5 record-size tornado
I'm finally wrapping up this year's Great Plains trip logs with the completion of the May 18, May 29 and May 31 accounts. The July 1st and 2nd Illinois tornado days are next on the list, whenever I get some time. With another possible Midwest tornado setup next week, the 2013 expedition account backlog may continue. That's always a good problem to have.
I don't get very excited over fireworks, but since they make for some nice images to add to the collection, I braved the crowds and traffic for two of three shows at the Arch on July 4th and July 6th (a combination of Fair St. Louis and 4th of July). Though not quite what I expected (the shells were mainly low and off center), it wasn't a total loss. This and several new images are on the St. Louis fireworks photo page.
The St. Louis Fire Department had two of their ladder trucks suspending a big American Flag on 4th Street. I was hoping they would have left this up for the fireworks, it would have made for a great composition.
