This is what happens when you post when you're really tired:
In this post, I alluded to Manchester, SD. I meant Spencer, SD, which was almost wiped off the map. I've now amended the post, to show my mistake and the correction thereof.

Phew. Too tired.

Wanna see gravity waves?

H/t to Skywatch:

Here's what a gravity wave looks like, via time-lapse photography. Sweet.

Apparently not, so a little late

I was up late last night, and I thought I had blogged about this, but apparently not.

A large, violent tornado hit Greensburg, KS last night. At least 7 are dead and many injured; there are reports of 70% damage within the town. Kinda reminds me of this day (edit: I meant this day, when it was **Spencer**, SD), when Manchester, SD was pretty much wiped off the map. This is the really really ugly side of tornadoes; nobody wants to see such death and destruction.

COD, yet again

These guys are in Hays, KS. A high risk has been issued by the SPC and they're right in the middle of it. And to boot, they've issued a PDS tornado watch. And COD is in the middle of it.

Parameters are wicked today, but chasing could be tough. I say this because storms are already lighting up off the dryline in NE, and will do sou southward. Picking a storm is going to be difficult, because they're all going to look so good. It is, therefore, a matter of luck.

They seem to be in a good spot, because their road options are pretty numerous.

I hope they stay safe, along with everyone else living or chasing in Kansas.

May 3

First and foremost, I think all weather enthusiasts and Oklahomans will remember this day if not forever, then for a long, long time.

Now, onto more current news, JH has helped a lot with the course, having set up a lot of the technology stuff. Thanks, JH!

Speaking (writing) of the course, there appears to be about 12 people enrolled in it. That's a pretty healthy number, and I'm looking forward to it.

Severe thunderstorms are possible in southern Saskatchewan this evening. The season has begun!
