Storm Chasing from my Computer Chair

Saturday, May 16 –

Today was the big race that Cim, Laredo, and the Phipps boys have been working toward. It’s called a “Tough Mudder” race. It was 11 miles of mud and obstacles. It was in a small Oklahoma town called Okemah, east of Oklahoma City. I’ve been worrying now for months about them being in that area of Oklahoma in mid may. It’s a tornado magnet.

Well, I was right. There were bad storms all day long. I found a live feed from KFOR Channel 4 in OKC. Also I had up TVN weather network on the internet. It has a map of the area showing storm chaser locations. You can click on a storm chaser and watch their live feed.

All day long I kept up with the storms. One tornado after another was forming. At one time the kids were in a tornado warning and a tornado even threatened Okemah a few hours after the race was over. I’m glad it’s over and the storms have moved on now into Arkansas.

Here are a few storm chaser pictures I snagged off the internet feed and from KFOR feed.

These first few are near Shamrock, TX and northeast into OK toward Sayre.
