Post #30 chasing Kansas today

Jon Merage and I headed out from Denver yesterday and were treated to a nice surprise near Burlington Colorado. What was a crappy linear mess exploded into a squall with a beutiful striated shelf cloud. We observed a shortlived cone funnel aloft and some brief gustnadoes but nothing really tonadic. I shot mainly bracketed exposures in hopes of capturing some good HDR stuff and I was very happy with the results (pics coming soon). We are sitting in Colby Kansas on the western edge of a 10% risk for tornadoes as highlited by the SPC. We will sit along I7o until initiation.
