April 27th Northeast Kansas Storm Chase

04-27-07 CHASE LOG: KS   There is not much to show for this day as the Twister Sisters and I went down to northeast Kansas and spotted a few lowerings on a couple of supercells near Atchinson, KS.  These storms were moving to the northeast at close to 45 mph and were very difficult to keep up with.  Nothing ever came close to making even a nice wall cloud as the storms ended up quite linear rather quickly.

A neat shot of our view of one of the storms and one of the many unpaved Kansas roads.  We were sitting at a cemetary at this point which was a spooky place to view the storms as they passed.
