Well known for getting too close and getting the "Money" shot, here's the latest from Canada this time. This is impressive but I'm wondering what happens when a satellite vortex forms in the wrong place or a vortex maxes out. They're toast!

Drove down towards Odessa and the old OFB but never found backed winds. These storms looked interesting for a while but were outflow dominant. The last one near Kermit was tornado warned but lifted it's skirt and poofed at us so we started the long drive back to dfw early. Oh well it was fun anyway.
We drove a long way from DFW for this storm but the route was pretty clear 20 to Sweetwater then up 84 to Lubbock. Before we got there the only target we had was near Hereford so we went up 27 to Plainview then on to Hart where we drove west to 385 which the storm seemed to be following southbound through Dimmitt. We saw the reported tornado's peaking through the rain a couple of times but the real show was when we took a step back to see the whole storm.

Headed for Childress but was cut short by HP beast already there. We diverted at Vernon to get in front as it approached Thalia. Looked outflow dominant with a barrage of lightning. We worked our way down to Hwy 114 and east of Vera where if appeared meanest then blew it's guts and chased us back home.
