Day 8: Lubbock, Texas

We got up this morning and anticipated storm initiation in southeast Colorado mid-afternoon. Well, after stopping in Dalhart for lunch, we saw storms initiating to the northwest. In New Mexico. So we went: my first time ever in that state! :)

The storm had, at times, okay rotation on RADAR and visually, but it decided to give it up after a while. So we went to another storm that was percolating to its northwest.
We got there and the storm had amazing supercell structure. It showed some good rotation for quite a while but eventually died out. Here's a picture of what it looked like:



Another storm was going pretty hard near Amarillo, so we went for it. It looked okay when we got there, but it was definitely outflow-y. Still a supercell, at least based on RADAR.

Which took us to Lubbock - and Cagle Steaks. Best. Ribeye. Ever.

We then came here to our hotel--or should I say our fleabag hotel. It is more or less clean, but lacks enough towels and the rooms are about 400 degrees, but to be fair the air conditioning works just fine.

A nice day, all in all. We actually got 3 supercells and steaks at Cagle's. In July.

FYI, this chase trip is the farthest south, by a long shot, CoD has gone on a trip 5.
