I'm going to make this short, cause I'm exhausted from this week. Witnessed 4 tornadoes yesterday. I think I said, "Oh my God" about 300 times yesterday. Those who were night chasing know what I'm talking about. We actually drove through a tornadic circulation north of Sedalia, MO. Unfortunately my video camera battery was dead. Debris of different sorts was rotating in a big swath around us. Bracing for impact, we somehow managed to get through. If you ask why this happened, all I can say is I don't know. We saw the meso, beaver tail and thought it was further away than anticipated. Power flashes illuminated to our north shortly after. Not only that, but we saw a wedge that got me a little excited, and yet another one on the ground at the same time. We lost the wedge as it approached (or seemed to) Marshall MO, but a new meso formed to our direct north, and formed tornado #3 of the day. My tripod was (and it's heavy duty) knocked over from the inflow, and I didn't get but one photo of the other tornado. Darin Brunin,however, caught it on his. From TESSA to High Risk in just a few days, and meeting chasers along the way was a great time for myself. Great to meet Tony Laubach, Angie Norris, Mike Mezeul and friends, Reed Timmer, Joel Taylor and friend also. I'm sure I'm missing out on a few from this weekend.

Will post photos later tonight or tomorrow.
