The beginning of my 2015 storm chasing season had been a slow, and frustrating start. I was working with a storm chasing tour company as a forecaster/guide, and after being on the road for nearly 3 weeks already, I had still not seen any tornadoes. Disagreements on forecasts, and chase decisions, as well as some vehicle trouble, had resulted in a few missed tornadoes. Upper level winds had been lacking most of time I had been out, which resulted in a lack of photogenic supercells thus far. I finally saw my first decently structured storms on May 22nd near Limon, Colorado, and on the 24th near Lamar, Colorado.
